Steve Bracken, Business Support Manager for Marine Harvest Scotland - who has been in the industry for over 35 years - points out that, while the use of chemical delousing treatments may have increased 10-fold in the last decade, it is important to remember that salmon producers have been investing huge sums in innovative non-medicinal alternatives. And that these methods, while taking time to perfect, are beginning to bear fruit.

A recent Freedom of Information request by a well-known anti-salmon farming activist showed that the use of lice treatments rose by 952% (from 45kg to 467kg) between 2006 and 2016, a period when salmon production rose by only 35%, a statistic that has gained widespread media coverage. During this time the use of medicinal treatments peaked in 2012, before falling for two years, then rising again during 2015 and 2016, but Mr Bracken believes that innovative new strategies will help ensure that the trend starts to go downward.
...
Our focus has been on developing a sea lice strategy to keep the number of treatments to a minimum by making each one work more effectively," Mr Bracken adds.
Those treatments which are currently approved are Azamethiphos (Salmosan), Emamectin benzoate (Slice), and Deltamethrin (Alpha Max) - with the former by far the most popular. Meanwhile Cypermethrin (Excis) and Teflubenzuron (Calicide) have not been used since 2011 and 2014 respectively.
