This percentage of state and federally raised hatchery trout intended for market but lost to disease rose to 90 percent in (USDA ).

    That might even exclude some diseases that came to the United States as the result of an epidemic, like the Zika virus or Ebola. Timeline: Major Epidemics in the U.S. Read about the major disease outbreaks that have shaped American history; from cholera to measles, from Spanish Flu to polio, and from AIDS to the novel coronavirus/COVID The whirling disease threat to American trout has been raised to a possible "biological Chernobyl," leading Alberta, a huge province of Canada, to shut its border to live trout from the United.

    The Whirling Disease Foundation, also in Bozeman, is a non-profit organization which funds extensive research on the disease and coordinates an annual symposium. Fisheries biologists agree it makes sense for New Mexico to tap into the information and resources of our neighbors to the north. Whirling disease has defied expectations ever since biologists fingered a European parasite as the culprit in Montana’s Madison River rainbow trout decline 13 years ago. In the mids, many western state conservation agencies warned that whirling disease could have catastrophic effects on wild rainbow trout populations.

Whirling disease is a parasitic infection of fish caused by a microscopic protozoan that destroys the cartilage of juvenile trout, resulting in skeletal deformities and sometimes whirling behavior.

Seriously infected fish have a reduced ability to feed or escape from predators and mortality is high. This book is a compilation of the latest whirling disease research findings, along with seven invited review papers in seven subtopics.

Most states within the North Central Region require that fish imported into the state are certified free of whirling disease before an import permit can be obtained.

Figure 3. Whirling disease, caused by a microscopic parasite introduced to the United States in the s, is believed responsible for the decimation of trout populations in some of America's most renowned trout streams, especially in the Rocky Mountain West.
