Sernapesca Surveys Farms North of Aysen for ISA

18 April 2013

CHILE - Sernapesca has begun an intensive inspection of all farms north of the Aysen region which has recently had two outbreaks of Infectious Salmon Anaemia (ISA).

If weather conditions permit, Sernapesca will finish its complete inspection of all salmon farming centers located north of Aysen in the next 10 days.

Around 64 salmon farms are north of the Aysen region and could therefore be a risk.

The National Director of Sernapesca, Juan Luis Ansoleaga, reported that although there have been no new outbreaks or suspected cases in the area, Sernapesca is conducting an intensive inspection of all farms located in the area.
