The Department of Natural Resources said no DNR-raised fish or hatchery water supply in Wisconsin tested positive for the virus (VHS, or viral hemorrhagic septicemia). But the DNR and the state Agriculture Department still are requiring testing for the virus before fish from any DNR hatchery can be used for stocking.
The virus makes fish bleed to death but is not a threat to people, pets or wildlife. It was found early last May in fish from the Lake Winnebago system in east central Wisconsin.
