Responsible for fish-plagues

Sporolegnia parasitica is widely present in estuaries and fish tanks and that, in particolar environmental conditions, can provoke serious damage to the fish, causing severe fish-plagues. It seems that with particular organic substances deriving from industrial dumping, the mushroom manages to attack the fish and provoke deadly plagues, as it happened in the estuaries of English rivers where large numbers of salmons died.
