Abstract: The goal of the this study was to identify Saprolegniaceae fungi isolated from affected rainbow trout eggs in six hatcheries in Mazandaran Province (Northern Iran) from December 2006 to February 2007. The isolated oomycetes were classified according to their morphological characteristics on hemp seed media at 18-24°C. Seven fungal species belonging to three genera of Saprolegnia, Achlya and Brevilegnia were identified. The fungal species were morphologically characterized as S. parasitica, S. mixta, S. monilifera, Saprolegnia sp., A. oblongata, Achlya sp. and Brevilegnia sp. This is the first recorded oomycetes infection in rainbow trout hatcheries in Iran.
