Health Biosecurity Post-harvest +5 more

UK - Confirmed Designations for the control of KHV disease have been lifted from all of the sites listed in the table below following successful completion of a four year KHV monitoring and retest programme, conducted by the Fish Health Inspectorate at Cefas.


Each of the fisheries were placed under movement controls in the form of a confirmed designation notice for the control of KHV disease following an initial outbreak in 2008. During the subsequent monitoring and retest period, there have been no further occurrences of clinical KHV disease and all samples of fish taken from these sites consistently tested negative for the presence of KHV.
