Dear all,

I am a postdoc at the University of Innsbruck, and we are culturing a 
marine diatom (Nitzschia curvilineata) as the food source for a 
free-living flatworm (Macrostomum lignano).

We have recently started to have problems with a contaminant, a 
thraustochytrid, which has a negative effect on the worms. We would 
therefore like to get rid of these creatures, and were wondering if 
any of you have experienced similar problems.

Specifically, we would like to know about possible substances to 
control thraustochytrid growth, and we would be interested to hear if 
there is any evidence that thraustochytrids (or other labyrinthulids) 
are associated with marine diatoms.

I am very much looking forward to your help and suggestions,

Best wishes,

I am currently looking at worms at:
