PRO/AH/EDR> Undiagnosed ulcerative disease – Ireland: salmon, trout

Undiagnosed — Ireland
Anglers in the north-east say they are ‘terrified’ that a mysterious virus could wipe out salmonid stocks across the country.
The undetermined disease, which causes bleeding and skin ulceration on salmon and sea trout, has still not been identified despite the best efforts of Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) and scientists internationally.
The affected salmon show signs of bleeding ulceration and haemorrhaging mainly along the area on the belly of the fish as well as the head and tail.
