Bacterial kidney disease (BKD) in fish

The Norwegian Veterinary institute monitor the situation of bacterial kidney disease on assignment from the Norwegian Food Safety Authority.

The aim of the surveillance program is to collect and summarize data needed to maintain freedom from BKD in zones and compartments free of Infectious salmon anemia.


Infectious salmon anaemia virus (pathogenic ISAV HPRdel) and Renibacterium salmoninarum were not detected in conjunction with surveillance in ISA-free zones and compartments in 2021.
