Senior DFO scientist suppresses positive ISA virus test results at Cohen Commission

 

 In 2004, Molly Kibenge, a post doc student working with DFO found ISA virus positive test results in BC salmon.  Of particular concern was the postives in eastern Vancouver Island Chinook & the high prevalence of the ISA virus positve test results in Cultus Lake sockeye, which happen to be the most endangered Fraser sockeye run.  For years scientists puzzled over the mystery of why this stock was doing so poorly.  Why did DFO try to hide this from the Cohen Commission?  Footage above from the Cohen Comission video feed.
