Grieg Seafood Newfoundland said Wednesday it detected Infectious Salmon Anemia (ISA) in one of its Atlantic salmon smolt operations during routine health inspections at its Marystown facility. The impacted tank contains 118,000 fish.

The Newfoundland project includes a high-end freshwater and saltwater recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) facility in Marystown Marine Industrial Park, close to Placentia Bay. The first production units of the RAS facility - the hatchery, nursery and the smolt unit, are almost completed, according to the company.
