In general, any factor that upsets the hemostatic balance of the living organism creates a condition called disease. VHS is a seasonal deadly infectious disease of fish that is most severe in late winter and early spring when the water temperature rises. It is a specific infectious disease that occurs in a fish farm establishment usually following the importation of live fish from another infected plant. The disease is caused by the VHSV virus in fish, which is a type of RNA virus that is in the form of a bullet. The causative agent is a rhabdovirus. The virus is highly sensitive to heat. At 60°C, it disappears within fifteen minutes. It survives at 0°C for 24 hours but at -20°C for a long time. The vhs virus has four types of genotypes, including genotypes 1, 2 and 3, which are mainly found in Europe and Asia and cause a severe disease in Trout are rainbow trout, and genotype 4, also known as the North American genus, has been found in wild fish on the west and east coasts of North America, and more recently in the Great Lakes Watershed.
