Reducing the Risk of Spreading Whirling Disease

Reducing the Risk of Spreading Whirling Disease
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency confirmed whirling disease,a fish disease that affects salmonoids,in Johnson Lake in Banff National Park.
Anglers,boaters and recreational water users can help reduce the risk of spreading whirling disease. It can be transmitted through equipment used for swimming,paddling,boating,water pumping,and fishing,or through infected fish and fish parts. Never move live fish from one body of water to another (that is illegal in Alberta).
Please ensure that you clean and dry all equipment that came into contact with water and eliminate all water from equipment before transporting.
Thank you - LBHA

For more information please follow this link - .
