Concerned with salmon louse level
The IMR points out that to wild salmon and sea trout the salmon louse situation is critical. A sustainable aquaculture is the responsibility of the industry, so the industry must act in this matter.
Today the Institute of Marine Research and the National Veterinary Institute informed the Norwegian Food Safety Authority and the Norwegian Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs about the serious salmon louse situation in Norwegian fjords.
The Institute of Marine Research gives both management and treatment advices.
