The location is already part of an existing monitoring zone for ISA.

Infectious Salmon Anemia (ISA) is suspected at site 35477 in Flatanger municipality in Trøndelag in central Norway, the Norwegian Food Safety Authority reported on Wednesday.

The site is operated by Norwegian salmon farming giant SalMar in collaboration with Norwegian institute Veso (Veterinærmedisinsk Oppadragssenter). The business notified the Norwegian Food Safety Authority on 26 September of findings compatible with ISA on fish at the site. The suspicion is based on the results of analyses carried out by Pathogen after sampling fish at the site.

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority has carried out an inspection of the facility with the taking of follow-up samples which are sent to the Veterinary Institute for possible confirmation of the disease. The location is already in a monitoring zone for the ILA.
