Yorkshire hit by a different ball game: fish disease

History repeats itself, this is made evident yet again in UK when it has been hit by a virus the second time. This is a notifiable fish disease in a farm in Yorkshire//.

The Centre for Environment Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) has released a report that states that scientists are studying the source of this viral outbreak causing viral Haemorrhagic Septicaemia (VHS).

The virus is thought to be a very serious hazard to fishes (touts) and it is mandatory by law for fish farms to inform the authorities of a suspected infection.

Rainbow trout is the most affected and the virus has the capability to destroy and kill up to 80% of the fish.

Just as in bird flu, touts up to the tune of 50,000 have been culled at the infected farm.

According to Cefas in the vicinity of the affected fish farm more might have got infected and so they have been inspected. Still, no clinical evidence of the disease at other locations has been found.

'Results of tests from samples are expected soon (tests can take up to two weeks) and inspections of other sites in the Ouse catchment area are due to be completed later this week. The affected farm has now been cleared of all fish and plans are in place to disinfect the site. There is no treatment for VHS. As a List II notifiable disease there is a legal obligation to report any suspected outbreaks of VHS to the Fish Health Inspectorate, 'said the report from Cefas.

So there is yet another threat from the animal world!
