The Development of Diagnostic Tests for Viral Hemorrhagic Septicemia and the Impact of the Disease on the Fish Farming Industry

John Lumsden was the first scientist to find the viral hemorrhagic   septicemia virus (VHSV) in Lake Ontario in the Spring of 2  5.   Along with Prof. Roz Stevenson, Molecular and Cellular Biology,   Lumsden is processing infected fish tissues and developing   diagnostic tests for the emerging in collaboration. He and Moccia   are also examining the impact to the fish farming industry and   looking at implications to natural and farmed fish populations if   the virus continues to spread.    (VHS); (VHSv); (viral hemorrhagic septicemia); (viral haemorrhagic   septicaemia); (viral hemmorrhagic septicemia)
