Toxoplasma gondii, Neospora caninum, Sarcocystis neurona, and S. canis are related protozoans
that can cause mortality in many species of domestic and wild animals. Recently, T. gondii and S.
neurona were recognized to cause encephalitis in marine mammals. As yet, there is no report of
natural exposure of N. caninum in marine mammals. In the present study, antibodies to T. gondii
and N. caninum were assayed in sera of several species of marine mammals.
