Results of DFO fish health audits of British Columbian marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility This report provides fish health data collected by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) from all licensed marine facilities culturing salmon in British Columbia (BC). Results of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) screening are provided, as well as a list of the bacterial pathogens isolated and whether a pathogen or disease has been confirmed by histopathological testing (microscopic examination). DFO veterinarians provide a farm-level diagnosis and identify any conditions of note based on these findings and other information collected during the fish health audit. The report also shows the number of fish health audits and licence condition inspections DFO makes each calendar year. Site-specific data were published on an annual basis from 2011 to 2016. From 2017 onwards, site-specific data are published by audit on a quarterly basis. Descriptions of the conditions, diagnoses, diseases and pathogens identified in the report can be found in the terminology file below. Many are the subject of active research by DFO Science and others.
