BRIEF-Bakkafrost: Veterinary tests do not prove presence of ISA virus at Hvannsund site

Fri 22nd July, 2016 6:01am
July 22 (Reuters) - P/F Bakkafrost  BAKKA.OL  
    * Fish farmer Bakkafrost BAKKA.OL  says results from 
veterinary tests at farming site A-73 Hvannsund  have all been 
negative and do not prove presence of pathogenic ISA virus 
    * ISA virus is a virus, which can hit salmon and some other 
species of fish 
    * During the last week, the Veterinary Authority has 
undertaken two extensive tests at the farming site with the 
purpose of confirming the suspicion of pathogenic ISA virus but 
the results from these tests have all been negative 
    * The Veterinary Authority has affirmed that the virus, 
which was indicated present, is a variant that is not very 
virulent, and this may be a possible explanation to the 
difficulty in finding the virus again
