Tracking sea lice infestations quicker through the internet
Aquaculture must continue to adopt new technologies and force growth if it is to complete with with other marine and captured fish products from the marine and capture industries as well as other aquaculture producers in other countries.

That's the view of the Newfoundland association which represents the aquaculture industry, NAIA. And it points to the introduction of a internet-based sea lice monitoring service as one example of the work that is currently being done in Canada's Coast of Bays. The work was assisted with a contribution of Can$80,000 from the provincial government.

The software monitoring system is an important tool in the management of sea lice as it will allow farmers to monitor and introduce targeted responses to sea lice attack.

This tool will follow the prevalence and evaluate control systems and will be used by companies running grow-out programmes in the Bays area. It has already proven itself in New Brunswick area.
