More fish with VHS found in Lake Superior

DULUTH, Minn. (WKOW) -- More fish infected with the deadly VHS virus have been found in Lake Superior according to the DNR.

Herring netted off the Apostle Islands are the third confirmed discovery of the virus in Lake Superior since January. 

Wisconsin fisheries director Mike Staggs says there's no longer a doubt VHS is in Lake Superior and all of the five Great Lakes.

Viral hemorrhagic septicemia, or VHS, is harmless to people but often lethal to fish. It can cause fish to die of internal bleeding.

Working to keep the virus from spreading to other waters is the goal of DNR officials.
