Infectious Salmon Anaemia

Infectious Salmon Anaemia

Infectious Salmon Anaemia - June 2002

Chaired by Professor Sir Roderick MacSween, this Inquiry was set up to assess the science behind legislation governing the control of Infectious Salmon Anaemia (ISA), a viral disease of salmon.  The Infectious Salmon Anaemia report concluded that it was impossible to establish whether the virus was exotic to the EU and recommended that fish communities in the sea around salmon farms and in fresh water whose catchments are associated with salmon farming, be examined in detail to determine whether the virus is endemic. It also recommended that the survey for ISA virus in wild salmon be re-established.
