Bloody effluent still spewing from B.C. fish processing plant

A photographer on Vancouver Island is again raising concerns about the practice of dumping effluent containing fish blood from fish processing plants.

Tavish Campbell says little has changed since he collected samples from bloody waste discharged into the ocean last year.

The samples, from processing plants that handle farmed salmon on Vancouver Island, were tested by the Atlantic Veterinary College and found to contain piscine reovirus (PRV), a virus that some researchers believe is harming wild salmon.
