Abstract

The expansion of ballan wrasse farming, used as a biological control against sea lice in Atlantic salmon, is constrained by the slow growth rate in the species and extended period required to reach deployment size. Rearing temperature and diets are the two main growth limiting factors in fish. In...

Abstract

Two groups of PIT-tagged lumpfish (initial mean weight±SD, 22.3±2.5 g) were established in land-based tanks. One group received marine pelleted feed (MF group) whilst the other received a mix of pelleted feed, live adult Artemia and frozen sea lice (LF group), both groups with a feeding rate of 2%...

Abstract

Lumpfish (Cyclopterus lumpus), a native fish of the North Atlantic Ocean, is utilized as cleaner fish to biocontrol sea lice infestations in Atlantic salmon aquaculture. However, bacterial infections are affecting cleaner fish performance. Vibrio anguillarum, the aetiological agent of vibriosis, is ...

Abstract

Ballan wrasse (Labrus bergylta) are used extensively as cleaner fish to control salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) infestations in the Atlantic salmon (Salmon salar) aquaculture industry. Fish are either cultured or caught in the wild before being transferred to salmon sea cages. Ballan wrasse ...

Abstract

In the present study, it was attempted to quantify sea lice grazing in lumpfish by using a recently published qPCR assay. This method utilizes a small aliquot (10 µL) of the stomach fluid of the lumpfish which can be collected using a sterile, 85 mm long pipette tip. We tested if repetitive...

Abstract

Atlantic salmon farming is one of the largest aquaculture sectors in the world. A major impact on farm economics, fish welfare and, potentially, nearby wild salmonid populations, is the sea louse ectoparasite Lepeophtheirus salmonis. Sea louse infestations are most often controlled through...

Abstract

Cleaner fish are increasingly being deployed in aquaculture as a means of biological control of parasitic sea lice, and consequently the farming of wrasse and lumpfish, the main cleaner fish species in current use in salmon farming, is now one of the fastest expanding aquaculture sectors with over...

Abstract

A passive-acoustic telemetry system was used for the first time for the fine-scale, three-dimensional tracking of individual cleaner fish in commercial Scottish salmon sea-pens in full commercial operation. The aim was to test the system performance and provide baseline data on the comparative...

Abstract

Winter ulcer disease, caused by Moritella viscosa, is a significant problem in cold water salmonid farming, although the bacterium can infect and cause disease in a number of other fish species, such as lumpfish (Cyclopterus lumpus). Lumpfish are used as cleaner fish, to eat sea lice from Atlantic...

Abstract

The use of cleaner fish as a biological control for sea lice in Atlantic salmon aquaculture has increased in recent years. Wild-caught wrasse are commonly used as cleaner fish in Europe. In Ireland, samples of wrasse from each fishing area are screened for potential pathogens prior to their...
