    • Salmon louse infestation levels on sea trout can be predicted from a hydrodynamic lice dispersal model 

      Bøhn, Thomas; Nilsen, Rune; Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Biuw, Martin; Sandvik, Anne Dagrun; Primicerio, Raul; Karlsen, Ørjan; Serra Llinares, Rosa Maria (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      The abundance of the parasitic salmon louse has increased with the growth in aquaculture of salmonids in open net pens. This represents a threat to wild salmonid populations as well as a key limiting factor for salmon ...
    • Timing is everything: Survival of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar postsmolts during events of high salmon lice densities 

      Bøhn, Thomas; Gjelland, Karl Øystein; Serra Llinares, Rosa Maria; Finstad, Bengt; Primicerio, Raul; Nilsen, Rune; Karlsen, Ørjan; Sandvik, Anne Dagrun; Skilbrei, Ove Tommy; Elvik, Kristine Marit Schrøder; Skaala, Øystein; Bjørn, Pål Arne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Atlantic salmon in aquaculture act as reservoir hosts and vectors of parasites like salmon lice and this parasite is shown to harm wild salmonid populations. In this study, n = 29,817 tagged Atlantic salmon were studied ...
