      Besnier, Francois; Kent, Matthew; Skern-Mauritzen, Rasmus; Lien, Sigbjørn; Malde, Ketil; Edvardsen, Rolf B.; Taylor, Simon; Ljungfeldt, Lina; Nilsen, Frank; Glover, Kevin A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014-10-26)
      Background The salmon louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis, is an ectoparasite of salmonids that causes huge economic losses in salmon farming, and has also been causatively linked with declines of wild salmonid populations. ...
    • Identification of quantitative genetic components of fitness variation in farmed, hybrid and native salmon in the wild
