Fish Virus in the Detroit River/Lake St.Clair?

(1/3) > >>

DDBethke:
var addthis_config = {"data_track_clickback":true}; Does anyone have any info about this? They are Comparing it to the Ebola Virus for Fish?

Cheetam:
It's called VHS.  Here's something I googled:

djkimmel:
VHS is in Erie and Lake St. Clair in 27 different fish species - there were die offs last year. Humans can not catch VHS.

The MDNR is working on a plan right now for Michigan - here is my initial contribution: Do not take fish from one unconnected body of water to another.

Specifically do not take bass from Erie or St. Clair and 'stock' them into any inland lake!

DDBethke:
Thanks for the link/info...

Have you seen any "VHS" infected Fish from Erie or St. Clair yet?

smbassman:
There where quite a few drum floating around Erie last summer.  Didn't notice any problem with the bass though.
