Original versionThis report is not to be quoted without prior consultation with the General Secretary.
From July to November 1974 an epizootic of vibriosis occurred in the young saithe population along the western Norwegian coast. Diseased fish showed external lesions. Vibriosis is the economically most important disease in sea-rearing of salmonids. The disease in the saithe population did not seem to affect the farm fish, indicating host species pathogenity in the bacterial strains.
