Tracking salmon through production offers new insight into gill disease
Gills coinfected with three or more pathogens is the “norm” in Western Norway’s salmon aquaculture, new field data suggests — but Neoparamoeba perurans is that which appears to be predominantly linked with gill disease.
New system to assess gill disease could help salmon producers

This means that to date, there has been no standardized methodology developed for field diagnosis, despite the fact that gill health issues are a growing concern for salmon producers in all the major salmon-producing nations.
Non-medicinal delousing approaches cause damage to salmon gill tissue
New research shows that thermal and mechanical delousing techniques used in Atlantic salmon aquaculture can cause damage to gill tissue, though the health impacts of this on farmed fish remain unknown.
Managing high-tech vaccination on Canada’s salmon farms
Demand for vaccination is ever-growing in the Canadian salmon industry, and the country’s producers have made a big shift toward mechanized approaches in getting the job done.
New research on deltamethrin resistance could pave way for optimized sea lice treatment
New research on deltamethrin resistance in sea lice could help improve the effectiveness and reduce the costs of treating the global salmon industry’s “billion-dollar problem.”
Safety and welfare concerns drive shift to licensed anesthetic in Mediterranean aquaculture
