Using standard sterile techniques and a single medium previously described (Kleinschuster and Swink 1993), the in vitro culture of a Perkinsus species isolated from Macoma balthica was possible. Zoosporulation, the release of zoospores, and the reestablishment of secondary cultures from the zoospores completed an in vitro life cycle.
