Sustainable management of interactions between aquaculture and wild salmonid fish

This multidisciplinary project addresses questions relating to (i) the declines in wild salmonid populations in NW Europe, (ii) aspects of the migratory behaviour and physiological responses of juvenile salmonids, as they adapt to seawater and as they r

Objectives
Using state of the art cell biological and physiological techniques and socio-economic modelling, recommendations on target lice burdens to allow the sustainable development of both industries will be achievable. For wild fishery managers, recommended l

Results
Identification of early migration routes of salmonoid smolts.
Assessment of species' susceptibility to sea lice infestation and the levels indicating lethal and sub-lethal stress.
Assessment of a prophylactic treatment protecting salmonoid smolts from initial infestation by sea lice.
Recommendations of the minimum level of ectoparasitic lice infestation.
