Sea lice management measures for farmed salmon production: research

Research report comparing the socio-economic and environmental cost-effectiveness of sea lice treatment measures used on Scottish salmon farms.

2. Objectives

The aim of this research project is to gather socio-economic and environmental information on sea lice management measures employed on Scottish salmon farms, and understand the relative cost-effectiveness of sea lice management measures from both the economic and environmental dimensions of disease control in the salmon industry. 

Specific objectives: 

  • to determine the relative effectiveness of sea lice management measures; 
  • to determine the cost of deploying sea lice management measures; 
  • to combine these assessments to provide common measures of economic efficiency across the sea lice management measures.
