Sea lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus spp.) are the major pathogens affecting the global salmon farming industry and have a significant impact in many areas. The annual costs for sea lice control have recently been estimated to exceed €500 million (only for Norway) and the aquaculture industry relies heavily on a few chemotherapeutants. Emerging resistance development against these drugs increases the necessity to develop new treatment methods (biological, prophylactic and drugs) and tools to avoid increased loss due to sea lice to ensure a sustainable salmon farming industry in the future.
