ISA Confirmed in Nordmøre

20 February 2012, at 12:00am

NORWAY - The Norwegian Food Safety Authority has confirmed infectious salmon anamia (ISA) at a fish farm in Bremsnesfjord Nordmre.

The results were confirmed after suspicions arose earlier in the week, following the detection of ISA in a routine sample.

A regulated zone will be established around the farm. The infected unit will have orders to harvest in a hygienically acceptable manner within a limited time.

ISA infection will not affect this year's planned stocking of fish in the area.
