In the Press: lice larvae temperature and salinity preferences

One of our past Masters student Tom Crosbie’s research has been getting some recent press! As part of his Masters, Tom looked at how salmon lice larvae responded to different temperatures and salinities. His results have really important implications both for the Atlantic salmon aquaculture industry and also management, as his results were¬† immediately plugged into models to try and predict lice dispersal. His published articles on the effect of temperature can be seen here and on salinity here, and the press articles on Fish Farming Expert here and here.
