AP: October 29, 2006, 2:05 PM ESTNow viral hemorrhagic septicemia sounds serious. That the AP felt they needed to tell me there was no risk to humans made me even more curious. I looked to see what fish were on the list.
Fish susceptible to viral hemorrhagic septicemia, which poses no risk to humans but causes internal bleeding in fish. A government crackdown on live fish shipments from the Great Lakes states is intended to check the spread of the virus.
Like I said, this doesn't sound good.
