European Salmon Virus Found in Pacific Salmon Stock

Wildlife News

 

VANCOUVER - Experts say a highly-infectious virus has been found in wild salmon on B.C.'s central coast.

The research of Simon Fraser University professor Rick Routledge led to the discovery of infectious salmon anaemia in two of 48 sockeye smolts collected.

Routledge, who's doing a long-term study on the collapse of Rivers Inlet sockeye, says the exotic disease could have a devastating impact on wild salmon in B.C.
