On 29th October my Department received notification of elevated/exceptional mortalities at a salmon farm in Bantry Bay. My Department, in conjunction with the Marine Institute, is examining the matter as a priority. I can confirm that a Veterinary Inspector has visited the site and samples were taken from live / moribund fish and are under investigation.  Pending completion of my Department’s examination it would not be appropriate to comment further.
