Surveillance on VHS susceptible fish in the Great Lakes

APHIS offered cooperative agreements to 19 states surrounding the   Great Lakes, as well as to those state bordering the Great Lake   states.  The funding was offered to regulatory agencies responsible   for aquatic animal health to conduct surveillance on VHS susceptible   fish species to better understand the geographical distribution of   the pathogen.  Results from the first year of surveillance have come   into the USDA-APHIS office (June 2  8). However, no end date is set   for this program.  APHIS is offering additional funds in FY  8 and   FY  9 to continue this program.      Control activities include confirmatory testing, surveillance and   compliance, and education and outreach efforts. These activities will  help to prevent the spread of VHS into aquaculture facilities.    (VHS); (VHSv); (viral hemorrhagic septicemia); (viral haemorrhagic   septicaemia); (viral hemmorrhagic septicemia)
