Sea lice research featured

July 11, 2011


The Bangor Daily News reported on groundbreaking research being done by UMaine's School of Marine Sciences that shows mussels eat the larvae of sea lice, which is a parasite that has infested salmon farms in Maine waters. UMaine Professor Ian Bricknell told the BDN the research could prove beneficial to not only farmed salmon and lobster industries, but also to other commercial fisheries.
