A suspected outbreak of infectious salmon anemia (ISA) is being monitored in Austevoll municipality, Vestland region, in western Norway.

Norway-based Leroy Seafood farms salmon at the site, according to the Norwegian Food Safety Authority.

Leroy notified the Food Safety Authority July 14 of findings compatible with suspicion of ISA after analysis of samples from fish.

The Norwegian Food Safety Authority is now planning an inspection of the plant to take follow-up samples that will be sent to the Veterinary Institute.
