Infestations of wild adult Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) by the ectoparasitic copepod sea louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis Krøyer: prevalence, intensity and the spatial distribution of males and [2pt] females on the host fish
TLDR
The copepod Lepeophtheirus salmonis Krøyer is a specific ectoparasite of North Atlantic and Pacific salmonids in their marine phases and appears to be characteristic of L. salmonisinfestations of wild Atlantic salmon; this is in marked contrast to reports of extreme male dominance on farmed stocks.

Transcriptomics of coping strategies in free-swimming Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Copepoda) larvae responding to abiotic stress
TLDR
The results further the understanding of the tolerances of L. salmonis copepodids to salinity and temperature gradients and may assist in the development of salmon louse management strategies. Expand
Differential rejection of salmon lice by pink and chum salmon: disease consequences and expression of proinflammatory genes.
The consequences of high (735 copepodids fish-1) and low (243 copepodids fish-1) level exposures of size-matched juvenile pink and chum salmon to Lepeophtheirus salmonis copepodids were examined. AtExpand
Sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) infection rates on juvenile pink (Oncorhynchus gorbuscha) and chum (Oncorhynchus keta) salmon in the nearshore marine environment of British Columbia, Canada
TLDR
The evidence from this control-impact study points to a relationship between salmon farms and sea lice on adjacent, wild, juvenile salmon, and the source of lice was a local salmonid population. Expand
Annual changes in the population size of the salmon louse Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Copepoda: Caligidae) on high-seas Pacific Salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.), and relationship to host abundance
The population size of the salmon louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis, was monitored annually in the summers of 1991–1997 by examining six species of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus spp.) caught by surfaceExpand
Susceptibility of farmed and two origins of wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) to experimental infestations with sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis)
TLDR
Differences in lice locations were identified among salmon populations, particularly: more lice on gills of farmed fish compared to Conne River salmon possibly due to differences in gill vascularization and localized immune responses. Expand
The Ecological Significance of Parasitic Crustaceans
TLDR
This chapter should demonstrate to readers that there are still far more questions than answers about the role of parasitic Crustacea in aquatic systems, but based on what the authors know today, they can say they are likely one of the most critical players in aquatic ecosystem dynamics. Expand
Investigations on the role of the salmon louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Caligidae), as a vector in the transmission of Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida.
A bacteria-parasite challenge model was used to study the role of sea lice, Lepeophtheirus salmonis (Copepoda), as a vector of Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida. Three hypotheses were tested:Expand
