More Norwegian fish suffer from diseases
Norwegian aqua farmers are facing major losses due to the salmon diseases ILA
and PD. The spread of disease has shown strong increase over the past six
So far this year there are registered 16 outbreaks of
ISA (infectious salmon anaemia) , and 62 cases of PD (pancreas disease). For
both it is twice as many cases as in all of 2007.
Neither ISA nor PD are
dangerous for humans, but much of the fish dies when infected, and must be used
for animal feed. In addition it is also necessary to disinfect the nets,
and often to replace equipment that is still in good order.
