Wild marine fish caught from a sea loch on the West Coast of Scotland were tested for infectious pancreatic necrosis virus (IPNV). One pool of 10 hake was found to be IPNV positive from 449 fish tested. This is believed to be the first isolation of IPNV made from hake caught in northern European waters. This was the only positive pool obtained from the study, illustrating a low prevalence of IPNV in wild marine fish caught from this location.
