The National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (Sernapesca) confirmed the existence of 26 centres farming Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) with a high spread of caligus (sea lice), one less compared to the previous week.
These data were provided by the authority under the Specific Caligidosis Sanitary Surveillance and Control Programme (PSVEC Caligidosis).
The 26 centres had an average weekly load greater than or equal to nine caligus parasite per fish, according to the latest report published on 12 November by Sernapesca.
Of all the centres reported as having high spread of sea lice (CAD), three were in the harvest phase while others were in the fattening period.
The centres in the harvest phase were Cuptana 7 and Cuptana 9 from Los Fiordos; and Huelden, from Marine Harvest.
Out of the 26 centres, two are farming rainbow trout, and the remaining ones are farming Atlantic salmon.
