The disposition of tritium-labelled ivermectin (22,23 di-3H-avermectin, B1a) in Atlantic salmon was studied by whole-body autoradiography, liquid scintillation counting, and thin-layer chromatography. Ivermectin was slowly absorbed, the highest concentrations being found in lipid-containing organs. High concentrations were also found in the central nervous(More)
Diflubenzuron is a potent inhibitor of chitin synthesis, with potential use against salmon lice infestations. The absorption, distribution and elimination of the substance in Atlantic salmon was examined after a single, oral dose of 75 mg/kg bodyweight. The kinetic properties were studied by whole-body autoradiography, liquid scintillation counting and thin(More)
Three incidents with high mortality in Atlantic salmon after trichlorfon treatment against salmon lice are described. All 3 incidents occurred at water temperatures of 12 degrees C or higher. The mean brain acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity of dead fish was less than 20% of normal activity, while survivors showed mean activities of 22-61% of normal(More)
This study was performed to investigate the absorption, distribution and elimination of orally given radiolabelled bacitracin methylene disalicylate (BMD) in rainbow trout kept in salt water. The level of radioactivity in skeletal muscle tissue remained low, but stable throughout the experiment, while radioactivity in bile and liver tissue increased for(More)
