Lab dedicated to stopping Whirling Disease opened in Canada
Do you even know what Whirling disease is? Believe us it's a problem worth a dedicated lab in Canada to stop it's spread.
When we saw this story about a dangerous disease striking fish in Canada and did a search on Google for the term, we were shocked and a little concerned. The disease seems prevalent in a lot of states and seems to strike trout species - although the search showed it effects a lot of aquarium fish as well.
The story that started us searching the web for the disease was from the Lethbridge Herald.
VEGREVILLE, Alta. – A potentially deadly fish disease observed in Alberta last year will be studied at a new lab dedicated to preventing further spread of the parasite that causes it.
The lab in Vegreville is believed to be the first in Canada exclusively dedicated to testing for and preventing whirling disease.
