PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A state biologist says a virus that can kill bass has been found in several West Virginia waterways. But no fish kills have been reported.
    
Division of Natural Resources fisheries biologist Scott Morrison says Largemouth Bass Virus was detected in North Bend Lank a year ago. It also has been found in the Ohio River.
    
Morrison tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel that the virus has caused minor fish kills in other states.
    
He says the virus is found in many fish and amphibians. But it only affects bass, as far as biologists can determine.
    
He says the DNR is working to prevent the virus from spreading to other bodies of water.
