    Abstract

    The first record of gravid salmon lice from a non-salmonid host is reported. Five out of twelve saithe (Pollachius virens) from inside salmon farm pens were infected with L. salmonis. Both gravid females and larval stages (chalimus) were present. These findings have implications for the control of salmon lice in farm situations.
