NORWAY - A suspected outbreak of Infectious Salmon Anemia (ISA) has been reproted in Hery, Nordland.

The suspicion is based on test results from the National Veterinary Institute which found the ISA virus in five of ten fish submitted.

A cage of immature fish reported slightly larger mortality than other cages. It is still low mortality and low moribund at the site.
