Possible disease found in farmed Atlantic salmon

Scientists say they’ve detected a potential disease in farmed Atlantic salmon for the first time in British Columbia.

But they say more research is needed to determine if it could affect wild populations of the fish.

Department of Fisheries and Oceans researcher Doctor Kristi Miller says lesions were found on salmon at one farm in Johnstone Strait, indicating they had heart and skeletal muscle inflammation, which could be linked to a virus.

The inflammation in fish does not impact human health and the disease has never been found in wild Pacific salmon.
