The Fish Health Inspectorates, the official services for the control of diseases of aquatic animals in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, investigate reports of outbreaks of ulcerative dermal necrosis (UDN) in wild fish, and suspicion in farmed fish. There have been no confirmed reports of UDN in the UK since 2012, and UDN is not subject to official disease control measures.
