Update: Whirling Disease 2018

As many anglers are likely aware, in the fall of 2016, whirling disease was discovered in Alberta, including within several commercial hatcheries. While the parasite responsible for the disease has no impact on humans, it can be extremely debilitating to trout, salmon, and whitefish (for more information on whirling disease: http://aep.alberta.ca/fish-wildlife/wildlife-diseases/whirling-disease/default.aspx).

Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) has undertaken a screening of all ponds stocked by ACA to determine the risk of fish escapement and the existence of whirling disease. Fort Lions Community Fish Pond at West River’s Edge has been found to be positive for whirling disease and Hermitage Park Pond requires further testing. Hermitage Pond will not be stocked this year; however, Fort Lions Community Fish Pond has been stocked with yellow perch. Yellow perch are not infected by whirling disease and will not spread the disease should there be fish escapement. A longer-term strategy for managing the disease risk at Fort Lions Community Fish Pond will be developed; however, at this point AEP and ACA believe that stocking perch strikes a balance between reducing the risk of disease spread and maintaining an angling opportunity at this popular community pond.

Whirling disease is a serious risk to Alberta’s fisheries. Please do your part to stop the spread of the disease and ensure you inform others to check out the AEP website: http://aep.alberta.ca/fish-wildlife/wildlife-diseases/whirling-disease/stop-the-spread.aspx.
