Both the salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis and its close relative Caligus elongatus are ectoparasitic on Salmonidae in salt water in the northern hemisphere. In this study we monitored population dynamics of these parasites on anadromous brown trout, i.e. sea trout, on the Norwegian Skagerrak coast in the winters of 1998-1999 and 1999-2000. The low salinity was expected to reduce sea lice populations as lice do not tolerate sojourns of more than a few weeks, at most, in freshwater. Results… CONTINUE READING
