About this book

Salmon Lice provides a single volume review of the parasite Lepeophtheirus salmonis, the key parasite standing in the way of sustainable and profitable production of salmonid fishes, including salmon, trout, charr, and whitefish. Opening with a review of the biology, morphology, life cycle, and larval behavior of this parasite, Salmon Lice then proceeds to review the distribution of planktonic larvae of salmon lice and addresses management techniques used in salmonid aquaculture and capture fisheries providing a practical assessment of the salmon lice issue, and exploring potential solutions to the problem. Salmon Lice will be of the utmost value to fish health researchers, aquaculture and fisheries professionals, and seafood industry personnel.
