USA: Second case of salmon anaemia discovered, 24,000 fish to be harvested
An aquaculture company was to remove 24,000 salmon from their cages this weekend to halt the spread of infectious salmon anaemia. Stolt Sea Farm was ordered to take the action after the discovery of the disease in pens in Cobscook Bay near Eastpot, Maine. It is the second case of the disease to be discovered this summer. Last month, 28,000 salmon were removed from Heritage Salmon's cages in Cobscook. The two cases are the first cases of salmon anaemia to be discovered in Maine since those that led to the slaughter of 1.5 million salmon in Cobscook Bay in January 2002, reported the Associated Press.
