    ..Our findings provide evidence of continuing evolution of ISAV in the Chilean aquaculture industry. ..

    ..Our results further suggest that ISAV-HPRΔ strains can be present without clinical disease in farmed fish and without being detected by virus isolation using fish cell lines. ..

    ..The Chilean PRV strains from coho salmon are more genetically diversified than those from Atlantic salmon, and some form a distinct new phylogenetic cluster, designated Genotype II. ..

    ..This outbreak, which produced high mortality in Coho salmon due to ISAV, is unique and may represent the introduction of the virus to a native wild fish population or a new strain of ISAV. ..

    ..The Canadian PRV diverged from Norwegian sub-genotype Ia around 2007?±?1, whereas the Chilean PRV diverged from Norwegian sub-genotype Ib around 2008?±?1. ..
