Brain-eating parasite likely responsible for massive leopard shark die-offs in Bay Area

It enters by the nostrils, wiggles upwards through olfactory pathways and plants itself in the brain. Once invaded, victims can’t be treated and will most certainly die. The parasite is called Miamiensis avidus, and it’s the pathogen most likely responsible for this year’s mass die-offs of several Bay Area fish species.
