I live near Erie, PA and a few smaller lakes have tons fish with this disease. I've seen carp covered with sores. Every so often, there are a lot of fish that wash up dead on Erie Peninsula beaches. I don't know about tens of thousands though. I remember as a kid going to the beaches and they were everywhere dead. It's quite alarming. [/quote] Spoke too soon. Yes, VHS is a problem for Lake Erie. Here's some links: http://www.independentcollegian.com/ut-studies-virus-in-lake-erie-1.2464335#.UEglco1lT5M http://www.lakescientist.com/2011/thousands-of-walleye-dead-possibly-due-to-vhs-119 http://www.dec.ny.gov/animals/25328.html [b]2006 saw mass die-offs from VHS in Lake Erie[/b], the St. Clair River, the Detroit River, and the St. Lawrence River, which connects the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. VHS was further detected in the Niagara River, which connects Lake Erie to Lake Ontario. It was also found in a walleye die-off in the landlocked inland Conesus Lake, the westernmost of the Finger Lakes in western New York state. This was the first case in the region outside waters contiguously connected to the Great Lakes. Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viral_hemorrhagic_septicemia [/quote]

Rick Nicholls, Member of Provincial Parliament for the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, is an elected official who oversees part of the shore community where the fish washed up.
On Wednesday afternoon, Nicholls said that dead seagulls were also among the thousands of dead fish along the Canada shore.
