New Hampshire Largemouth Bass Virus

New Hampshire Fish and Game officials found that some largemouth bass have contracted the Largemouth Bass Virus.
The presence of the virus, that can be fatal to infected fish and was first discovered in 1996, is troubling to state Fish and Game officials.
"The possibility is there to lose the older, nicer largemouth bass," said Fish and Game Pathologist Dr. Joel Bader.
Scientists are unsure of the root cause of the virus.
