Summary

We have been collaborating since 1992 in studies on southern sea otters (Enhdyra lutris nereis) as part of a program to define factors, which may be responsible for limiting the growth of the southern sea otter population. We previously demonstrated Toxoplasma gondii in sea otiers. We postulated that cat feces containing oocysts could be entering the marine environment through storm run-off or through municipal sewage since cat feces are often disposed down toilets by cat owners. The present study examined the sporulation of T. gondiioocysts in seawater and the survival of sporulated oocysts in seawater. Unsporulated oocysts were placed in 1.5 ppt artificial seawater, 32 ppt artificial seawater or 2% sulfuric acid (positive control) [...]
