Whirling disease hits North State hatcheries

Sunday, June 14, 2015 — During routine hatchery and fish health checks, California Department of Fish and Wildlife fisheries pathologists found that captive-raised fish at the Darrah Springs Trout Hatchery — located in the Battle Creek watershed east of Redding — tested positive for whirling disease.
    Prior to the discovery, trout were transferred from an infected raceway at Darrah Springs to Mt. Shasta Hatchery.
    While fish transferred to the Mt. Shasta Hatchery from Darrah Springs Hatchery tested positive for the parasite, it is still unknown if biological and environmental conditions allowed it to complete its lifecycle at that location. Approximately 3 million rainbow and brown trout at both hatcheries are now under quarantine and will undergo testing.
