Abstract: There are currently reports of reduced sensitivity to certain lice treatments in different parts of Scotland and world-wide, and research is on-going into the extent and mechanisms of resistance to different treatments (Denholm et al., 2002; Sevatdal & Horsberg, 2003; Sevatdal et al., 2005). In particular, increasing evidence of resistance of Lepeophtheirus salmonis to the chemotherapeutant emamectin benzoate (Lees et al., 2008; Espedal et al., 2010) poses a serious problem to commercial farms because there are few licensed and effective treatments available.
