Spring Viraemia Detected in England #024
September 10, 2010

Welcome to the new Subscribers.

The World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) reported in mid-May an outbreak of Spring Viraemia of Carp in England. A population of ornamental goldfish (Carassius auratus) imported from China was sampled and tested for SVC at the point of arrival in the United Kingdom, according to the OIE. The sample was taken as part of a routine surveillance program on imports of SVC susceptible fish from third countries.

The OIE reported that this was a legal import and the consignment, 35 boxes containing 9,961 live fish, arrived with appropriate health certification from the Chinese authorities declaring freedom from SVC. After arrival, the consignment was held in secure quarantine by the importer to allow the fish to acclimatize after shipment.

When the sample proved positive for SVC, all the fish were destroyed in the secure isolation, according to the OIE. The site then was disinfected.

The OIE considers the case resolved, and no more reports will be submitted. Chinese authorities were informed of the SVC-positive result in the imported fish.

How are you preventing your Koi and Pond fish from getting this deadly fish disease? What measures do you have in place to help lower stress in your Koi?

Did you know Stress kills fish? Koi are hardy fish but they can easily get stressed when their surrounding change or the water chemistry is not right. Donít wait until you see sores, Koi not eating, torn fins, weak Koi, or fins with fungal growth, protect your Koi NOW!

If you havenít started using KoiZyme in your pond NOW IS THE TIME! It is also on sale so there is no better time to buy then NOW!

About KoiZyme:

KoiZyme is a biological formula of naturally occurring bacteria, enzymes and micro nutrients. When KoiZyme is introduced into pond water that is infected with Aeromonas, Pseudomonas or any gram negative or gram positive bacteria, the bacteria and enzymes in KoiZyme competes with these pathogens for the nutrients in the pond water. These nutrients are primarily a nitrogen based nutrient from fish waste. KoiZyme will consume these nutrients and thus starve Aeromonas and Psuedomonas. The bacteria counts (CFU's) of these pathogens will then be reduced to such a low level that they will not have an affect on your fish.

Is it too late? Are you already faced with a fish disease? If so then try ProForm-C. ProForm-C is the preeminent broad spectrum malachite green & formalin treatment.

ProForm-C is the safest and most effective treatment for the control of diseases caused by Ichthyophthirius (ich), Costia, Trichodina, Chilodonella, Oodinium and fungal infections.

The ONLY MG&F treatment that can be used in water temperatures as low as 50 degrees (F), thus allowing you to treat in early Spring and late Fall. All other MG&F treatments can NOT be used below 62 degrees (F).
