Abstract: Abstract: Infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) is a rhabdovirus which causes devastating epizootics of trout and salmon fry in hatcheries around the world. In laboratory and field studies, epizootic survivors are negative for infectious virus by plaque assay at about 50 days postexposure. Survivors are considered virus free with no sequelae and, thus, are subsequently released into the wild. When adults return to spawn, infectious virus can again be isolated. Two hypotheses have been proposed to account for the source of virus in these adults. One hypothesis contends that virus in the epizootic survivors is cleared and that the adults are reinfected with IHNV from a secondary source during their migration upstream. The second hypothesis contends that IHNV persists in a subclinical or latent form and the virus is reactivated during the stress of spawning. Numerous studies have been carried out to test these hypotheses and, after 20 years, questions still remain regarding the maintenance of IHNV in salmonid fish populations. In the study reported here, IHNV-specific lesions in the hematopoietic tissues of rainbow trout survivors, reared in specific-pathogen-free water, were detected 1 year after the epizootic. The fish did not produce infectious virus. The presence of viral protein detected by immunohistochemistry, in viral RNA by PCR amplification, and in IHNV-truncated particles by immunogold electron microscopy confirmed the presence of IHNV in the survivors and provided the first evidence for subclinical persistence of virus in the tissues of IHNV survivors.
