Abstract

Lumpfish are currently produced and utilized as cleaner fish, to control sea lice infestation rates in salmon net pens, but information on environmental requirements is still limited. This study aimed to determine the zone of environmental hypoxia for two relevant fish sizes (15 and 60 g) and...

Abstract

The production of ballan wrasse is hampered by the poor growth and feeding performances and lack of robustness of the species in culture, which is often attributed to sub-optimal nutrition. The commercial marine finfish diets used in ballan wrasse hatcheries, rich in marine ingredients, may not...

Abstract

Cleaner fish such as lumpfish (Cyclopterus lumpus) are widely used as a biological method for delousing in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) aquaculture. Previous studies have mainly focused on the number of salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) per salmon or on the proportion of individuals grazing on ...

Abstract

We used 4 years of publicly available data (2016-2019) on chemical usage at salmon sites with information on production, stocking, locations and environmental conditions to explore patterns of anti-sea lice treatments in a Canadian province. Results show that sequential chemical treatments are...

Abstract

Draft genome sequences of 23 Tenacibaculum sp. strains that were isolated from Cyclopterus lumpus (lumpfish) were investigated to elucidate possible routes of transmission between Salmo salar (Atlantic salmon) and lumpfish.

Abstract

The production of lumpfish (Cyclopterus lumpus) is increasing rapidly due to their use as a cleaner fish for sea lice infections in Atlantic salmon farming. The sustainable development of captive broodstocks is reliant on good egg quality however this remains unknown. The present study assessed the ...

Abstract

Infestations by the salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis Krøyer) represents the major fish health problem that the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) industry has to face. Sea lice infestation has a large impact on the economy of fish farmers, which are looking for a cost-effective and environmentally...

Abstract

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous small RNA molecules involved in the post-transcriptional regulation of protein expression by binding to the mRNA of target genes. They are key regulators in teleost development, maintenance of tissue-specific functions, and immune responses. Lumpfish (Cyclopterus...

Abstract

The development of effective vaccines is a critical step towards the domestication of emerging fish species for aquaculture. However, traditional vaccine delivery through intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection requires fish to reach a minimum size and age and therefore cannot provide protection at early...
