  1. Use vaccinations

    In 2011, a randomised, controlled study conducted in Norway (Lauscher et al., 2011) found that vaccinated salmon, Salmo salar, showed increased levels of survival after exposure to infectious salmon anaemia compared to an unvaccinated control group. Survival levels were lower with increasing strength of vaccine. After 45 days, mortality levels in the vaccinated groups were 55.0%, 28.3% and 10.0% respectively, for vaccines at strengths of 4%, 20% and 100%. Three groups were given one of three different strengths of vaccine at 100%, 20% and 4%. Two control groups were given a mock vaccine and saline. Six weeks after vaccination, all groups were infected with the infectious salmon anaemia virus and mortality was recorded daily for 45 days.
