A final inspection must be conducted after fish have been in quarantine and have been feeding for 12 to 16 months. This inspection must include the use of a heat stress test on all sampled fish. Results of the inspection must be reviewed and approved by the commissioner.
A completed quarantine report on forms provided by the commissioner must accompany each lot of fish to be released from quarantine.
Fish released from a quarantine facility cannot be released into the wild and must be processed for use as food or kept in a facility licensed by the commissioner under part 6250.0300, subpart 1, or Minnesota Statutes, section 17.4984, subdivision 1, or 97A.401, subdivision 3.
