Trout disease detected in fish ponds is not dangerous to human health. It causes economic damage, if appropriate measures are not taken in a timely manner, said head of the Food and Veterinary Agency (FVA) Zoran Atanasov.
At the press conference where he gave an account of the work that has been done, Atanasov said that so far there wasn’t a large mortality of fish, but that once the disease was detected, mass mortality would not be allowed.
“It is a disease that only endangers the fish population and that endangers the trout and possibly the carp as a carrier of the virus. For now, there is no high mortality in fish, but once we detect the disease, we will certainly not allow mortality to begin to appear en masse,” said Atanasov.
