Wild salmon are dying in the rivers before they spawn, we are tracking European salmon viruses
If you had evidence that a European flu-like virus was seeping uncontrolled into the place you call home and government refused to do anything about it, while the industry involved was known to use the same strategic advisor as Exxon, the tobacco industry, China and the US government, could you sit quietly and just hope for the best?
The infectious salmon anemia virus, ISAV, is a branch of the influenza family that infects salmon. It is spreading wherever Atlantic salmon are held in feedlots. There is no cure. Like other flu viruses, it does not bother to proof-read its mistakes, called mutations and that is how ISAV ends up growing fangs and claws when allowed to reproduce rapidly in feedlots. It caused $2 billion in damages when it jumped from Norway to Chile in farm salmon eggs.
