Project Details

Western Fisheries Research Center used laboratory challenges to compare the effects of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) on important native and introduced Great Lakes species including salmonids (e.g., lake trout, Chinook). New detection tools for water or tissue samples were developed and validated. Nonlethal sampling methods and serological assays were tested. Results and recommendations were presented at workshops. The information and tools from the project are critical to our furthering our understanding of VHSV in the Great Lakes.
