Lepeophtheirus salmonis is a copepod parasite of salmonid fish, commonly referred to as sea lice, and is particularly pathogenic to Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). Although endemic on wild salmon, L. salmonis infection intensity rarely reaches clinical disease levels in wild fish. The stationary natu...

This chapter covers the host range and specificity, morphology, life cycle, physiopathology, parasite-host interactions, role as disease vector and control and prevention (biological control, environmental approach, drug therapy, vaccination and insecticides) of Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus r...

Effective control of parasitic sea lice (including Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus elongatus), is a major challenge currently facing sea cage salmon aquaculture. Emamectin benzoate (EMB; SLICE®), a macrocyclic lactone (ML), has been the drug of choice for sea lice treatment over the past decade...

Sturgeon are harvested worldwide for their meat and eggs, sold as caviar and are among the most economically important fish species worldwide. A generally low physiological response to external stimuli/stressors has been documented in these phylogenetically primitive species. Considering how little ...

Resistance development to parasiticides has been a problem in both terrestrial and aquatic environments. A major challenge exists in early detection of resistance emergence due to the low frequency at which resistant organisms can occur initially within a population and the difficulty in detecting t...
