Broughton Archipelago Sea Lice Action Plan

Broughton Archipelago Sea Lice Action Plan

Microform - 2004
Rate this:
In February 2003, the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Fisheries committed to establish an Interim Sea Lice Monitoring program for salmon farms in the Broughton Archipelago. The objective was to gather information on the levels of sea lice on farms and work with the industry to develop management actions to minimize the levels of lice during the migration of wild salmon smolts. This document describes the monitoring methods used and presents data from the industry-conducted monitoring program with regard to average number of gravid & motile lice (calculated for different size classes of fish). The last section contains results of independent audits of randomly selected fish farms in which fish were sampled for sea lice every two weeks. The audits were intended to confirm the lice loads reported by industry.
