Streptococcosis is a septicemic disease that affects both freshwater and saltwater fishes; it was first reported in rainbow trout, Salmo gairdneri (Hoshino et al. 1958). Additional outbreaks have since been described in cultured golden shiners (Notemigonus crysoleucas), yellowtails (Sepiola quinqueradiata), and eels (Anguilla japonious) , and in a variety of feral saltwater fishes.
