Sea Lice ID/Enumeration

BC CAHS has the in-house expertise and equipment required to monitor sea lice loads. Fish are examined for life stages of two species of lice:

  • Lepeophtheirus salmonis (L. salmonis), most commonly found on salmon in the ocean;
  • Caligus clemensi, found on many different fish species in the ocean;

BC CAHS has, in the past, performed sea lice and fish health audits.
