100% ISA Virus Infection Rate in 100 Cultus Lake Sockeye Revealied in Covered-up 2004 DFO Report


Read this bombshell report from the Chilliwack Times on the revelation of a 2004 report that shows a 100% ISA virus infection rate in 100 sockeye samples taken from Cultus Lake in 2004. A must-read!

“A seven-year-old unpublished report indicates 100 per cent of a
sample of Cultus Lake sockeye tested positive for a potentially deadly
salmon virus. The undated report (likely from 2004) produced at a
Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) station in Nanaimo, tested wild
Pacific salmon-sockeye, chinook and pink- from various locations,
including Cultus Lake.

Twenty-two per cent of the salmon, or 117
out of more than 500 samples tested positive for ISA, with more than
half of the positive tests from the Fraser River. And more than
half of all the positive test results came from the 64 out of 64 samples
of Cultus Lake sockeye found with ISA virus.” (Dec. 6, 2011)
