Assessment of the risk to Fraser River sockeye salmon due to Aeromonas salmonicida transfer from Atlantic salmon farms in the Discovery Islands area, British Columbia / C. Mimeault, P. Aubry, D. Wan, J....: Fs70-5/2019-017E-PDF
"Fisheries and Oceans Canada, under the Aquaculture Science Environmental Risk Assessment Initiative, is conducting a series of assessments to determine risks to Fraser River Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) due to pathogens on marine Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) farms located in the Discovery Islands area in British Columbia (BC). This document is the assessment of the risk to Fraser River Sockeye Salmon due to Aeromonas salmonicida on Atlantic Salmon farms in the Discovery Islands area of BC under current farm practices. The risk assessment was conducted in three main steps: first, a likelihood assessment which includes four consecutive assessment steps (farm infection, pathogen release, exposure of susceptible wild fish, and infection of susceptible wild fish); second, a consequence assessment; and third, a risk estimation which combines the first two steps"--Abstract, page ix.
