Yersinia ruckeri Bacterin

For Veterinary Use Only

This bacterin contains formalin inactivated cultures of Yersinia ruckeri serotype I (Hagerman strain).

USE: For the vaccination of healthy salmonids as an aid in the prevention of Enteric Redmouth Disease, caused by Yersinia ruckeri serotype I.

VACCINATION PROGRAM: This bacterin has been shown to be safe and effective when administered by immersion to healthy salmonids 2 g or larger. Vaccination should precede exposure of vaccinates to the disease agent by at least 250 degree-days (number of holding days multiplied by the mean water temperature [°C] during the period).

Dosage and Administration

Each liter of undiluted bacterin is sufficient to vaccinate 100 kg of fish. To use, add 1 liter of bacterin to 9 litres of clean hatchery water to make a 10 liter vaccine bath. Net, drain and immerse 5 kg batches of fish (≥ 2 g in size) in the bath for 30 seconds. The bath may be reused up to 20 times before discarding. Withhold food from fish 24 hours prior to vaccination.


1. Shake well before use.

2. Store in original container at 2-8°C (35-46°F). Do not freeze.

3. Use entire contents when first opened.

4. Vaccinate healthy fish only.
