The effect of water temperature on infections of salmonid fish was investigated. Chondrococcus columnaris infection was studied in rainbow trout, coho and spring chinook salmon, Aeromonas salmonicida infection in coho and spring chinook salmon; and Aeromonas liquefaciens infection in steelhead trout. In all cases mortality rates were high at 64 to 69F; moderate at 54 to 59F; and low or zero at 39 to 49F. Progress of the infections was accelerated at higher temperatures, and progressively retarded at decreasing temperature levels. In infection of coho with Ceratomyxa shasta, mortality was high at 69F, low at 49 to 54F, and zero at 39 to 44F. This infection in rainbow trout resulted in high mortality at all temperatures except 39F. In both cases the course of the disease was most rapid at higher temperatures, and became progressively slower as the temperature decreased. For infection of kokanee salmon fingerlings with sockeye salmon virus, the temperature range of 54 to 59F was optimal.
