The impact and control of biofouling in marine aquaculture: a review
Biofouling in marine aquaculture is a specific problem where both the target culture species and/or infrastructure are exposed to a diverse array of fouling organisms, with significant productionExpand

Escapes of fishes from Norwegian sea-cage aquaculture: causes, consequences and prevention.
The escape of fish from aquaculture is perceived as a threat to wild fish populations. The escapes problem is largely caused by technical and operational failures of fish farming equipment. InExpand

Attraction of wild fish to sea-cage fish farms in the south-western Mediterranean Sea: spatial and short-term temporal variability
Aggregations of wild fish were counted around 9 floating sea-cage fish farms along a 300 km stretch of the Spanish coastline in the south-western Mediterranean Sea. Each fish farm cul- tivated SparusExpand

Environmental drivers of Atlantic salmon behaviour in sea-cages: A review
Salmon may sense and respond to a range of environmental variables within sea-cages, including light, temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, water currents and certain chemical treatments usedExpand

Fish aggregation device (FAD) research: gaps in current knowledge and future directions for ecological studies
AbstractWe reviewed the literature concerning fish aggregation devices (FADs) to determine areas of relative research deficiency. Using specific searches of the Aquatic Sciences and FisheriesExpand

Coastal salmon farms attract large and persistent aggregations of wild fish: an ecosystem effect
Coastal aquaculture is a globally expanding enterprise. Currently, 1200 salmon farms operate in coastal Norway, yet their capacity to aggregate and sub- sequently modify wild fish distributions isExpand

Salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) development times, body size, and reproductive outputs follow universal models of temperature dependence
Temperatures regulate metabolism of marine ectotherms and thereby influence development, reproduction, and, as a consequence, dispersal. Despite the importance of water temperatures in theExpand

Garnet zoning and metamorphism of the Barrovian type area, Scotland
A microprobe investigation of the high grade metamorphic zones from the Barrovian type area in Angus, Scotland, shows the importance of local zones of retrograde cation exchange between garnet,Expand

Network analysis reveals strong seasonality in the dispersal of a marine parasite and identifies areas for coordinated management
ContextSea lice are the most significant parasitic problem affecting wild and farmed salmon. Larval lice released from infected fish in salmon farms and their transport by water masses results inExpand
