If you eat fish and you're not following the salmon anemia story I linked to on Monday, you should be. Washington Senator Maria Cantwell has caught wind of the problem, and along with lawmakers from Alaska she's now calling for a Congressional inquiry.

"We need to act now to protect the Pacific Northwest’s coastal economy and jobs,” said Senator Cantwell said in a statement today. “There’s no threat to human health, but infectious salmon anemia could pose a serious threat to Pacific Northwest wild salmon and the thousands of Washington state jobs that rely on them. We have to get a coordinated game plan in place to protect our salmon and stop the spread of this deadly virus."

The problem with salmon anemia—noted here—is that "no country has ever gotten rid of it once it arrives."
