The salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Krøyer 1837)) is an ectoparasitic copepod which represents a major pathogen of wild and farmed salmonid fishes in the marine environment. In order to facilitate research on this ecologically and economically important parasite, a hatchery and culturing system permitting the closure of the life-cycle of L. salmonis in the laboratory was developed. Here, the hatchery system, breeding practices, and selected louse strains that have been maintained in… CONTINUE READING
