frequently asked questions
Since the 2013 outbreak, a number of preventative actions have been taken and are ongoing at Pequest to help eliminate the bacterium from the hatchery and to avoid the disease in future years. All hatchery raceways are steam-cleaned and disinfected, and the remaining brook and brown trout have been vaccinated to help protect them from the disease. In addition, the hatchery will raise primarily rainbow trout since this is a species with natural resistance to the disease. Options are being explored to cover the outdoor raceways in which the trout are raised to increase biosecurity of the facility.
