The aim of the study is to determine the mechanism associated with the gonad malfunction observed in roach in high prevalences in the Archipelago Sea, northern baltic Sea, and the association between the reproduction disturbances and simultaneous infection with a microsporidan parasite.Additionally the effect of heavy metals on the immune response in fish will be determined with roach as a model organism.The investigation will be carried through using histological analysis, infection experiments, analysis of heavy metals in fish and feed organism, and immunological studies.
