Sealice on salmonids: their biology and control.
Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus elongatus are the two common species of sealice responsible for serious disease problems in salmonid aquaculture. L. salmonis in particular is the most seriousExpand

Parasites and food web patterns
1. We expanded two previously studied food webs, those of the Ythan estuary and Loch Leven, by the documentation of metazoan endoparasites present in each system. The resulting webs are the first inExpand

Patterns of pair formation and mating in an ectoparasitic caligid copepod Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Krøyer 1837): implications for its sensory and mating biology
Non-invasive observations of single cohort and manipulated populations of the sealouse on laboratory-maintained salmon established the sequence of reproductive events and mating. Protandry occursExpand

Observations on mating and reproductive behaviour of Lepeophtheirus salmonis, Krøyer (Copepoda: Caligidae)
Abstract Mating in Lepeophtheirus salmonis was similar to that reported for L. pectoralis in both the procedure and positions attained by both sexes but the timescales were different. Adult malesExpand

Diseases of wild sea trout in Scotland in relation to fish population decline
Abstract Sea trout cathceshave been unusually low in recent years in some areas of Scotland, particularly parts of the west coast, coincident with a decline in sea trout catches and stocks in partsExpand

The influence of Cryptocotyle lingua (Digenea: Platyhelminthes) infections on the survival and fecundity of Littorina littorea (Gastropoda: Prosobranchia); an ecological approach.
Abstract This study considers the impact of digenean parasites, especially Cryptocotyle lingua (Creplin) on the survival, reproduction, growth rate and foot colour of Littorina littorea (Forbes andExpand

Comparison of the susceptibility of sea trout (Salmo trutta L.) and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) to sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Krøyer, 1837)) infections
The relative susceptibility of sea trout (Salmo trutta L.) and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) to sea lice infections was investigated under experimental conditions. Skin damage was described forExpand

Light intensity, salinity, and host velocity influence presettlement intensity and distribution on hosts by copepodids of sea lice, Lepeophtheirus salmonis
Intensity and distribution of presettlement by the copepodid of the sea louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis, on smolts of its host Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, were quantified for 27 infection regimesExpand
