    Abstract

    The availability and use of medicines to control infestations of sea lice on Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar 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).
