By Curtis Cartier Wed., Nov. 30 2011 at 9am

Editors Note: Published in a Seattle Newspaper.

​In mid-October, Canadian officials announced the shocking new discovery of a deadly virus that had infected sockeye salmon in British Columbia and was a threat to salmon all over the Pacific Northwest. Turns out, however, that the discovery was neither shocking nor new.

In fact, Canadian officials have known about the virus for nearly a decade, ever since it was first found in 2002. They just didn't want to tell anyone.

The Seattle Times' Craig Welch reports that a Canadian researcher tested for and found the virus in more than 100 fish from Vancouver Island to Alaska back then.
