Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium – Local Environmental Observer Network, Feb 8, 2017 (emphasis added): Goodnews Bay, Alaska; Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma) with lesionsObservation: While on the Goodnews River fishing in early February, (winter) a local resident pulled in a trout and immediately noticed, what looked like pus coming out of a Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma). Is this something that is a natural/unnatural event? Can we consume the fish or is there a recommendation and/or advisory about eating fish with pus coming out of it?

ANTHC – LEO Network, Feb 9, 2017: Goodnews Bay, Alaska; Dolly Varden (Salvelinus malma) with deformity — Observation: Couple of local residents were out and about fishing for trout in early February. While fishing, a Dolly Varden was caught and pulled in, we could visibly see that the trout had a deformity. What is the reason for the deformity? ADF&G Fish Pathology Lab Consult: Jayde Ferguson writes: “… There are a number of different potential causes for a spinal deformity in fish, which would include genetic factors, infectious agents (e.g., Flavobacterium), traumatic injuries, neoplasia, dietary imbalances, and environmental (e.g., pollution) factors…

ANTHC – LEO Network, Nov 28, 2016: Chefornak, Alaska; White Fish (C. nelsonii) with Saprolegnia Fungus — Observation: Pus found on white fish (Coregonus nelsonii) from Chakchak, Alaska. More than 75% of white fish caught with under ice net had pus on them. We checked total of 4 nets and we caught 52 total white fish. Only 12 fish had no pus on them. Other people were seeing the same pus on the fish. I’ve never seen these kind of pus since I started setting nets about 8 years ago. I don’t think people are eating the fish. Some white fish had pus all over their bodyLEO says: … [If] you observe several fish with the same condition, we would begin to question if there is an environmental or other cause. In this instance with so many fish showing evidence of illness, environmental conditions are a possible factor that can contribute to this condition. NOTE: LEO is interested in the observations of members to help better understand the scale of this event… Alaska Department of Fish and Game Consult: (2016-12-02) Ted Meyers, Fish Pathologist… “The prevalence for the fungal infection is high but if due to poor or otherwise stressful environmental conditions it is likely that many of the fish in the population will be affected… I do not recommend eating any of these fish…”
