    KHV

    NO IMPORTS OF KOI ANYMORE IN EUROPE FOR NOW !
    SINCE THIS WEEK JAPANESE KOI ARE NOT ALLOWED ANYMORE IN THE EEG FOR KHV.
    THIS IS SO UNTIL END NEXT WEEK FOLLOWING OFFICIALS.
    IN ENGLAND THERE ARE RUMOURS THAT THIS SITUATION WILL BE LIKE THIS AT LEAST UNTIL MAY !
    HOPEFULLY THIS ENDS FAST OR IT WILL DESTROY OUR HOBBY !

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for confirming the situation in Belgium.

    In the UK - there is a proposal for a ban to come into effect on the 1st of May. However, before then there is a review meeting in the middle of April.

    Like you say - I hope this comes to an end before then.

    What is the situation in North America? Do we still allow them in. They won't take our beef BSE. Some Japanese companies I have talked to said they are not shipping till they get a handle on the disease.

    I have some koi waiting to be shipped from Japan that have been on hold for this KHV thing, and the latest is that they won't be shipped until the end of March, at the Earliest.

    Best Regards,

    Bob Winkler

    Hi Bob,

    As a dear friend of ours is fond of saying you're mixing apples with oranges. In Europe we are talking about import bans, I think your shipment might be held up by an export ban in Japan where different prefectures are imposing different regulations. I know that Niigata has a ban that is due for lifting in March subject to completion of an on going test programme for KHV.

    Enjoy AFKAPS and be nice to any Brits you meet.

    Hi Mike,

    One pair that will be going for certain are the Lynne & Terry Wells, the
    South East Section Show Chairman and Sec. They'll be teaming up with some of the other foreign contingent from South Africa and Holland.

    Shame I can't join 'em.

    Folks,

    I've seen a fax from the European Commission from the Health and Consumer protection directors office requesting all members to ensure that KHV is not introduced into the member countries from Japan. The disease was quoted as being "exotic" in this fax.

    While I can understand the concern, and appreciate that there's a big carp fishing business in Europe, I think that the Commission is missing the point here with regards to KHV. It's not something that's native to any single carp or koi population. :roll: :roll: :roll:

    rgds,
    Brian Sousa

    I've seen it stated already, but a little koi stuck his head out of the water today and told me that there is an immense bottleneck for koi trying to be exported from Japan (several months behind).
    I couldn't get "why" before the little guy swam away, but it is probably that they don't want to infect another part of the market as that would severly damage their precarious position.
