Virus that affects carp responsible for Lake Elysian fish kill

A virus which comes from ornamental koi or pet goldfish is the cause of thousands of carp dying in early July in Lake Elysian. According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Rerources (DNR) and the University of Minnesota, koi herpesvirus (KHV) was the main cause of the fish kill. It is the state's first documented case of the virus in a wild fish population. KHV does not affect humans and can cause disease in koi and common carp. Goldfish can also be carriers of the virus. For more on the fish kill, check out the August 3 edition of the LIFE/Enterprise.
