§ Mr. Bishop
Infectious pancreatic necrosis is a virus disease which can cause heavy mortalities in young salmonidae. It has been confirmed on two fish farms in Norfolk. We suspect that the disease may also be present in several other farms elsewhere and the necessary tests to determine this are in hand.
To restrict spread of the disease all movements of live fish, fish eggs and feeding stuffs for fish have been prohibited from sites where infection is suspected or confirmed.
