Koi Herpesvirus Disease Reported in Austria

12 November 2015

AUSTRIA - An outbreak of Koi herpesvirus disease has been reported for the first time in Austria.

In total, 400 koi carp were effected on the farm in Weiz, Steiermark.

The source of the outbreak is thought to be due to the introduction of new animals.

Since this is the first time that koi herpesvirus disease is identified in the history of the country, the reason for notification as first occurrence applies to the country but the event is in fact limited to a zone.
