Sea lice as a density-dependent constraint to salmonid farming
Fisheries catches worldwide have shown no increase over the last two decades, while aquaculture has been booming. To cover the demand for fish in the growing human population, continued high growthExpand

Disease interaction and pathogens exchange between wild and farmed fish populations with special reference to Norway
Norway has the largest salmon-farming industry in the world, an industry that is still growing, and in recent years production of marine species like Atlantic cod has also increased. At the sameExpand

Use of molecular epidemiology to trace transmission pathways for infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) in Norwegian salmon farming.
BACKGROUND Infectious Salmon Anaemia (ISA) is a disease affecting farmed Atlantic salmon, and most salmon producing countries have experienced ISA outbreaks. The aim of the present study was to useExpand

Space-Time Modelling of the Spread of Salmon Lice between and within Norwegian Marine Salmon Farms
Parasitic salmon lice are potentially harmful to salmonid hosts and farm produced lice pose a threat to wild salmonids. To control salmon lice infections in Norwegian salmonid farming, numbers ofExpand

Temperature-dependent reproduction and survival of Gyrodactylus salaris Malmberg, 1957 (Platyhelminthes: Monogenea) on Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.).
The relationship of survival and reproduction of Gyrodactylus salaris Malmberg on the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) to water temperature (2.5-19.0 degrees C), was studied on the basis of temporalExpand

A stochastic model for the assessment of the transmission pathways of heart and skeleton muscle inflammation, pancreas disease and infectious salmon anaemia in marine fish farms in Norway.
Salmon farming is threatened, economically and ecologically, by infectious diseases. To reduce the risk of epidemics, authorities have developed regulations. These are based on quantitativeExpand

A stochastic model for infectious salmon anemia (ISA) in Atlantic salmon farming
Infectious salmon anemia (ISA) is one of the main infectious diseases in Atlantic salmon farming with major economical implications. Despite the strong regulatory interventions, the ISA epidemic isExpand

Gillnet selectivity and size and age structure of an alpine Arctic char (Salvelinus alpinus) population
The aim of the present study was to address possible implications of biased sampling for the commonly adopted uni- and bi-modal size structures and unimodal age structures in Arctic char (SalvelinusExpand
