Epizootic Haematopoietic Necrosis Disease

Epizootic haematopoietic necrosis is an infectious disease of finfish. It is caused by the epizootic haematopoietic necrosis virus, which belongs to the family Iridovirdae.

In Canada, epizootic haematopoietic disease is a federally reportable disease. This means that anyone who owns or works with aquatic animals, who knows of or suspects epizootic haematopoietic disease in the animals that they own or work with, is required by law to notify the CFIA.
