Dear Reader,
The top story on the website this week is the recent
SVC scare in the UK aquarium trade. You might recall that last month we
covered the discovery of the deadly Spring Viraemia of Carp virus in a
shipment of goldfish imported from Hong Kong. Well, we've recently
received confirmation from the Fish Health Inspectorate that several
dealers who received fish from the same supplier have had movement
restrictions placed on their premises, preventing them from selling or
moving susceptible species including Goldfish and Koi.

The complexities of testing meant that it was nearly two weeks until
the trade discovered that the fish they purchased might have been
carrying the virus. When Inspectors used legal powers to prevent the
movement or sale of fish, some suppliers stopped trading while awaiting
test results to find out whether their fish were infected. Others
culled their stock, sterilised their systems and carried on trading.
You can get the full story on the website.
