  1. Use vaccinations

    In 2010, a randomised, replicated, controlled study in Canada (Burnley et al., 2010) found the vaccine, Lipogen Forte V1, increased salmon, Salmo salar, survival during an outbreak of bacterial kidney disease when compared with an industry standard. Four other vaccines were not successful, relative to the industry standard vaccine. Groups of salmon were given one of four commercially available vaccines: Lipogen Forte V1, Renogen, Bayovac 5.1 Vet and Alpha Ject 4000. Mortality was measured weekly or biweekly for eight months.
