Salmon killing virus found in BC supermarkets

**BREAKING NEWS** Read and share widely. Infectious Salmon Anemia found in Atlantic salmon which were purchased in local supermarkets. 

Five positives out of 29 sampled fish. That's a 17% infection rate. 

If it is confirmed that those salmon came from fish farms in BC, it means that their pens are infested, literally swarming, with that virus.

Alexandra Morton writes: " I don't know how I can buy 29 Atlantic salmon and come up with 5 positive results while Gary Marty [BC's lead veterinarian] can't find it in the thousands of tests he has done."
