Sea lice on fish

Can salmon “leap away” their lice?

If fish jump up through a layer of “delousing oil” on the surface of a sea cage, such may be an efficient treatment procedure. However, this method has been tested in the past, where one of the problems was infrequent salmon leaping. Now we have discovered that if salmon are prevented from reaching the surface for 1-2 days, they leap much more frequently immediately afterwards.
