APHIS withdrawing interim rule prohibiting interstate movement and importation of certain fishes due to VHS

APHIS is withdrawing an interim rule that established regulations to restrict the movement and importation into the United States of live fish that are susceptible to viral hemorrhagic septicemia, a highly contagious disease of certain fresh and saltwater fish. We are taking this action after considering the comments we received following the publication of  the interim rule, which subsequently delayed the effective date of the interim rule indefintely.
