NORWAY - An outbreak of Infectious Salmon Aneamia (ISA) has now been confirmed in Hadsel, Nordland, after it was suspected on 20 March 2015.

The outbreak applies to a Northern Salmon farming AS farm in sea site 13782.

All who live in the area must show due diligence to prevent the spread of disease.

The locality is now emptied of fish and the Food Safety Authority is following the situation further.

Movement restrictions have been applied.

A control area will also be created soon to prevent, reduce and combat ISA.
