IHN

The IHN disease (infectious haematopoietic necrosis) is caused by a rhabdo virus.

IHN is a disease of salmon fish. However, the virus can be transmitted also to other fish species, e.g. pike. Other animals apart from fish cannot become infected by the virus and eating fish affected by the disease does not cause any health risks to people or other homeothermic animals, such as dogs or cats.
