Protecting Farmed Fish From VHS

Here are some photos from a fish farm we visited recently.  The farmer raises hybrid bluegill (male bluegill x female green sunfish) and koi.  We took spleen, kidney, and heart tissue samples and sent them to the MSU aquatic animal health lab for surveillance testing.  The hybrid bluegill will be tested for viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS) and the koi for both VHS and Spring Viremia of Carp….Hannah Vanos
