The first known occurrence of VHS in Scotland has been confirmed. The virus was isolated from tissue samples collected from moribund farmed turbot. The virus was identified as VHSV by a neutralisation test. Clinical signs included exopthalmos, distended abdomen, ascites, pale liver and a white appearance of the kidney. The source of the infection is under investigation. All fish from this farm were destroyed.
