Cooke detects deadly infectious salmon anemia virus in Newfoundland salmon farming facility

At a site that is currently being harvested - "Cooke has detected two cases of Infectious Salmon Anemia (ISA) in one salmon cage at its North West Cove open-net pen salmon farm located in Hermitage Bay. This has not yet been confirmed by Newfoundland and Labrador's Fisheries, Forestry and Agriculture." - Intrafish | November 22, 2021



This begs the question, if ISA is confirmed, will the fish still go to consumer market as happened in 2013 with quarantined fish from Liverpool Bay's Coffin Island site? The diseased fish were processed for market and with no required labelling to indicate they were infected with ISA.


In 2013 - Cooke Aquaculture is the first company to process fish with infectious salmon anemia (ISA) under a new set of rules set by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
