Centrovet Ltd: Chile Salmon Saviour

A vaccination for Infectious Salmon Anaemia arrives in Chile.

Centrovet Ltd has recently obtained the SAG provisional registry for the “Subunit vaccine against Infectious Salmon Anaemia” (ISA). The vaccine is the first in its type developed by a Chilean Laboratory, and it is also the first available immunological alternative against this pathology which has devastated the Chilean salmon industry over the last 18 months. If successful, the vaccine will staunch a plague that has wiped out 16 salmon-farming centres and led to hundreds of lay-offs in Chile’s southern regions in the last year. The vaccine, which was obtained from the Virus in the Chilean fishes, has already got the provisional registration from the ‘Servicio Agrícola y Ganadero’ (SAG) and has also been authorized by Chile’s National Fisheries Service (Sernapesca) so that it could become commercialized within two months.
