What could this mean if further confirmed for pets and people?

Are fish being fed BSE infected cow parts? Or sheep infected with scrapie? Is anyone putting this into pet food too?

Well, fish eat each other. So some fish are meat eaters. Farmed fish would make great disposals for beef parts garbage, sheep part garbage.

Then farmed fish garbage including brains and spinal chords would go in pet food.  And of course people eat farmed fish.

I think that's how the food chain would go. BSE and TSE has now affected Sheep, cattle, cats, and people in one form or another.
Now this study says include farmed fish. These prions seem to be adapting.

That's the scary picture.

Plus the meat products are probably put into the fishfeed.

Now I'm real glad I opted to buy the more expensive wild sockeye salmon the other day. I also bought lake trout, but maybe that's farmed. I try not to give the cats food with fish in it. Sometimes I do give them some wild, unsalted canned salmon. Why, oh why, are animals our dumping ground? This planet would be so much better if God smote all humans off the face of it.

Earth would at the least have the chance to recover to it's original pristine condition.  So I had to refresh and review myself on the topic of Farmed Fish last night for a while . . Chile is now vaccinating farmed salmon . .

 PUERTO MONTT (Chile) - FISHERIES in Chile on Tuesday began inoculating farm-raised salmon against infectious salmon anemia (ISA), a virus that has killed millions of fish and threatens the viability of a once-flourishing industry. Authorities so far have vaccinated some 300,000 farm-raised hatchlings, which next year will be taken out to sea for release and harvest, and say millions more will be inoculated in the coming months. 'We hope to vaccinate between 10 and 12 million fish over the next six months, Alejandro Pino, a manager at the Recalcine pharmaceutical company which manufactures the drug, told AFP.

Of course never mind these malady's are created by poor business and production practice we'll just give it some kind of shot and that fix it.

And exactly what is in the innoculations - the ingredients - that they are mainlining into these fish? Gawd will these end up mating with salmon who have no sickness and mess their DNA with this innoculations ingredients?
