High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - December 13, 1973, High Point, North Carolina I it w i in North Carolina lakes High Point Enterprise thursday december 13,1173 so pollution blamed for fish disease Nice Buck Owen Hunt of route 2, Trinity displays a Nice eight Point Buck he killed in Montgomery county. Fish disease sign of times by Jim Dean Raleigh a organic water pollution is apparently creating conditions for widespread disease among game fish in some of North Carolina s Best fishing lakes. That is the preliminary finding of an initial study to discover Why diseased fish in to popular lakes on the Catawba and Yadkin River chains have been showing up in increasing numbers. It is estimated that some 34.000 fish have died in Badin Lake and the total so far May be much higher. Sportsmen and the . Wildlife resources commission Are concerned because the fish most directly affected seem to be those most popular among fishermen. Striped Bass White Bass White Perch Large Mouth Bass bluegills Green Sunfish Robin and Warmouth Are among the hardest hit and diseased fish have been found in virtually every Large impoundment on the Catawba and Yadkin River chains. A joint study by the n. C. Wildlife resources commissions division of Inland fisheries under the direction of or. Norris b. Jeffrey and the Southeastern cooperative fish disease project at Auburn University shows that Badin Lake has apparently the highest number of diseased fish however significant numbers of diseased fish have also been found in High Rock and Tuckertown lakes a but not Blewett a Falls a on the Yadkin River system. Though the Yadkin River system appears most severely affected diseased fish were also found in All of the major lakes on the Catawba River system where samples were taken including Lake Norman. Lake James Lake Rhodhiss Lake Hickory Mountain Island Lake and Lake Wylie. A fishermen first reported the disease to us last summer a said Jeffrey Quot and we began to make some initial checks to see what was causing it. At first there were not enough diseased fish to give us an accurate idea of either what was causing the problem or How widespread it might be. This summer however the numbers of diseased fish have increased significantly and we Are concerned a we have our biologists working on it principally w Cape Carnes Siler City Wayne Chapman Albemarle and Roy Miller of Winston Salem a said Jeffrey. A we have also requested and received Aid from the Southeastern cooperative fish disease project. Larry Olmstead of Duke Power company is also assisting. A during Early november or. John a. Plumb of the Southeastern cooperative disease project worked with us in gathering samples and information and we now have his report a said Jeffrey. Plumbs report along with preliminary results from wildlife commission studies indicates that the two organisms primarily responsible for the disease Are Epi Stylis a protozoan and a Romonas Liqun facies a bacterium Light infestations of and a Costia like protozoan were also found on the Gills of fish the two main diseases show up As lesions or sores on the skin Scales and Mouths of affected fish thus prompting the common name of a red sore with Epi Stylis a the most common disease found a the parasite attaches itself to the hard parts of the fish Scales fins spines or exposed Bones and can cause a Small sore. Later As the parasites increase or grow the sore increases in size and pit like inflamed sores occur. Infestations on fish May Range from very mild with Only one or two Small sores to very severe with Large sores covering up to 75 per cent of the fish s body. Epi Stylis rarely causes death to the Host fish by itself but does Render the fish unacceptable to most fishermen. Epi Stylis often leads to secondary bacterial infections of a Romonas Lique facies.

Red spot a disease among fishes is caused by two kinds of microscopic organisms that cause sores on the Scales fins Mouths and Gills of several kinds of fishes. Severe infections can kill fish and mild infections make the fish highly unattractive to anglers although the flesh May be eaten without harm to people. Don Baker who Heads up the wildlife commissions division of Inland fisheries says the Micro organisms undergo a population explosion in water that contains Large amounts of organic pollution. A we cannot Point a Finger at a single Industry or municipality that pours organic waste into these Rivers a Baker said. A and we cannot treat the entire River systems to control the disease organisms. The Job would be too big and too Baker added that the Only cure is pollution abatement with everyone involved helping with the Job. A the red spot incident a he said a should be a warning Bell reminding us that the situation will not improve nor go away if left a a a the wildlife commission has had another a cat Quot report. Hunter Brown 4209 Murray Hill Road. Charlotte reports that on thanksgiving Day he and Ernie Myatt were Hunting Deer in Buncombe county near Lake lure. Using tree stands. At about 3 30 p. In. Myatt saw a Large cat which he described As follows color Silver Gray weigh 75 to 125 pounds length 7 8 feet with a three foot Long Tail that curved downward and turned upward at the tip. Wildlife officials believe that if the report is accurate this was very Likely an american Panther. Although Many biologists have contended that the Panther was Long ago exterminated in North Carolina frequent authentic reports of sightings Are causing considerable re thinking on the subject. Some believe the panthers being seen in North Carolina May have migrated Here from Florida where they Are known to exist. We won t know for sure until one has been Tranquili Zed with a Dart gun weighed measured and carefully examined. Reclusive and reclusive As these cats Are such a possibility is extremely Remote.
