Fish Disease Breaks Out in N.C. Reservoirs

Record #:
Preliminary findings have discovered that organic water pollution is creating the conditions for disease among game fish in North Carolina’s fishing lakes. The disease, which has been found to be present in all southeastern states, produces sores lesions on the fish skin, scales, and mouths. Pollution from sewage, industrial waste, and runoff produce the conditions which favor the condition to be spread among populations; however, at the time there is no particular solution except to limit pollution into the river and lake systems.
