AbstractThe control of sea lice infestations on cultivated Atlantic salmon is a major issue in many regions of the world. The numerous drivers which shape the priorities and objectives of the control strategies vary for different regions/jurisdictions. These range from the animal welfare and economic priorities of the producers, to the mitigation of any potential impacts on wild stocks. Veterinary ethics, environmental impacts of therapeutants, and impacts for organic certification of the produce are, amongst others, additional sets of factors which should be considered. Current best practice in both EU and international environmental law advocates a holistic ecosystem approach to assessment of impacts and risks. The issues of biosecurity and ethics, including the impacts on the stocks of species used as cleaner fish, are areas for inclusion in such a holistic ecosystem assessment. The Drivers, Pressures, State, Impacts, Responses (DPSIR) process is examined as a decision-making framework and potential applications to sea lice management are outlined. It is argued that this is required to underpin any integrated sea lice management (ISLM) strategy to balance pressures and outcomes and ensure a holistic approach to managing the issue of sea lice infestations on farmed stock on a medium to long-term basis.

F-Press: A Stochastic Simulation Tool for Developing Fisheries Management Advice and Evaluating Management StrategiesCodling, E.; Kelly, C. (Marine Institute, 2006)F-PRESS is a stochastic simulation tool based on a simple algorithm designed to fit in with the ICES conceptual framework for software development. F-PRESS can be used to develop probabilistic assessment advice or to evaluate management strategies or harvest control rules (HCRs). In this paper, we describe and justify the underlying methodology on which F-PRESS is based and give full details of the modular structure of the simulation algorithm. We use the example of Irish Sea cod to demonstrate how the software can be used to develop probabilistic management advice or to evaluate and compare different HCRs.

Have Hatcheries a Role in Sea-Trout Management?Fahy, E (Department of Fisheries and Forestry (Trade and Information Section), 1983)The artificial propagation of sea trout in Ireland has a long history but the fish were never produced in large numbers and they were disposed of at an early stage in development. The evidence suggests that artificial propagation was undertaken as a by-product of salmon management. The circumstances in which artificial propagation of sea trout may be justified are examined and some general reservations are expressed. For the future it seems likely that sea trout will be exploited in wild rather than in put-and-take fisheries. The emphasis should remain on providing the most suitable nursery conditions for the fish to reproduce naturally. Further investigations should however be undertaken on devising suitable methods of propagating sea trout and consideration might be given to re-establishing some of the long lived strains which are now believed to be extinct.
