Sea lice of the species Lepeophtheirus salmonis, are marine ectoparasites on salmon. It is estimated that it costs the salmon farming industry €300 million yearly due to control, treatment of the lice, as well as reduced growth and health of infected fish. Though treatment and monitoring are primarily targeted towards the adult parasitic life stages of the salmon lice, real-time knowledge of abundance and distribution of the free swimming larval stages has the potential to improve treatment planning, and validate mathematical life cycle and spread models.
