Section 7. Abstract


This project proposes to develop a method for early monitoring of BCWD in salmonid hatcheries. Using simple bacteriological methods designed for use in the field (ie. at the hatchery level), critical control points for the detection and management of BCWD will be determined. This monitoring system would allow management to minimize the impact of the disease on fish production and reduce economic impacts of the disease on hatchery budgets. Methods developed for hatchery monitoring will also be applied to surrounding environmental waters (ie. sources containing wild fish) in order to determine disease relationships between hatchery and wild fish populations. This project addresses FWP goals in areas of fish health, costs of production, and hatchery-wild fish interactions. This project will take three years to complete.
