Highly contagious virus found in majority of Clayouquot Sound Salmon Farms | The Narwhal
While the aquaculture industry is busy telling the Minister of Fisheries and anyone who will listen that the piscine orthoreovirus being found in BC salmon is a native strain, Clayoquot Action's research tells a different story...
Quote from the article:
"Salmon at a majority of Clayoquot Sound fish farms are infected with the Norwegian strain of a highly contagious virus, according to an investigative report released Wednesday.
The report by Clayoquot Action, a Tofino-based conservation society, says feces, flesh and scale samples from 14 out of 15 farms tested positive for the piscine orthoreovirus, a disease that gained notoriety after a video of bloody discharge from packing plants in Tofino and Campbell River went viral in December 2017."
