Abstract

The availability and use of medicines to control infestations of sea lice on Atlantic salmon, Salmosalar L., farms in Scotland has changed considerably in the last decade (Lees, Gettinby & Revie 2008b). Whereas hydrogen peroxide and organophosphate compounds were used widely throughout the 1990s and in the early 2000s, only two therapeutants have remained in common use since 2005: topical cypermethrin (Excis; Novartis Animal Health, Camberley, UK) and an oral formulation of emamectin benzoate (SLICE; Schering Plough Animal Health, Uxbridge, UK).
