2 Spores are the source of infection for whirling disease. Even if diseased fish are removed from waters, the spores can survive for decades and spread whirling disease. Anglers have unknowingly helped to spread the disease by using infected fish as cut bait. Killing TAM (Triactinomyxon) Anglers fishing in heavily TAM-infested waters are encouraged to take extra steps to prevent the spread of whirling disease. Rinsing and drying boots, waders, and any fishing equipment will generally kill any stage of TAM.

Infection appears to have been reduced in hatcheries that tested positive, and monitoring will continue. 2 Spores are the source of infection for whirling disease.

A canker occurs when dead tissue sinks away and rots. Cankers appear sunken because the surrounding tissue continues to grow. 20 In forests that are infected with the fungus, patches of dead or dying trees usually appear on a rugged, heavily vegetated terrain that can be difficult to get to. 2 Scientists take a sample from a tree if it is suspected of being infected by the fungus that causes sudden oak death. The sample is then grown in a laboratory to confirm the presence and identity of the fungus.
