Whirling disease is another example of a fish disease with potential to
devastate fish populations in non-native waters. Fishes like brown trout
that evolved with the Myxobolus cerebralis pathogen have some immunity, but
rainbow trout in the non-native waters of the US and Canada do not.

There is a summary of whirling disease in pdf format on the Trout Unlimited
web page at
