Just take care about not confuse netting mark with other fungus like saprolenia. This happen very often on the Restigouche watershed. A fish caught in may had these marks, and we saw some on the Patapedia last week, very diffrent than gilnet mark (we caught one with this too...) The pictures I have seen seems to me as saprolenia.

What is strange, is the fact fish are found dead. On the Restigouche watershed, they usualy don't find dead fish with this infection before fall, well after spawning period, or if before, so few...And I don't believe anisakis simplex being related...

Story to follow ...
