The influence of infection with the juvenile stages of the sea louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Krøyer) on the response of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum) to a net confinement protocol was investigated. The experiment consisted of two groups of seawater-adapted rainbow trout, one which was exposed to a total of 4000 nauplii/copepodid stages of L. salmonis 30, 25 and 14 days prior to confinement. Confinement elicited a greater stress response in the lice-exposed fish, than in the… CONTINUE READING
