This study describes the success of broodstock culling in controlling Renibacterium salmoninarum infection on two sea ranches in Iceland. On both ranches, the overall percentage of positive broodfish was around 35% when the program was initiated. After a few years of broodstock culling, the prevalence figures for broodfish declined and remained below 2.0%. The progeny of the fish subjected to culling, sampled during smoltification, always tested negative for R. salmoninarum. As infected… CONTINUE READING
