Bakkafrost P/F Announces Suspicion of Neoparamoeba Perurans on Farming Site
Bakkafrost P/F announced that there is a suspicion Neoparamoeba perurans on a Bakkafrost farming site. Final results are expected within two weeks. The possible detection is not connected to any gill pathology nor mortality, and there is no impact on fish health or fish welfare. PCR analysis carried out by the Faroese Food- and Veterinary Authorities on routine samples from the Bakkafrost Farming site in Fuglafjordur, resulted in suspicions of the presence of Neoparamoeba perurans, the agent known to be able to cause amoeba gill disease (AGD). Bakkafrost and the other farmers in the Faroe Islands work with the Faroese Food- and veterinary authority to avoid the N.perurans to other farming sites. There have been performed surveillance tests for the N. perurans during the last year in sea sites in the Faroes, all with negative results. For safety reasons, the harvest of the fish will be intensified and a possible treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide will be considered to prevent proliferation and disease. The fish has a harvestable size and was prior to the suspicion planned to be harvested from October 2013. The site in question has approximately 1.1 million fish, with an average weight of approximately 6.0 kilograms wfe and is thus ready for harvesting.
