The development of salmon farming in the world has been accompanied by a number of conditions like parasitism by Sea Lice (Caligus rogercresseyi), this problem occurs in the fattening stage of Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) in the sea, increasing mortality and generating economic losses. The salmon industry efforts have focused on resolving the Sea Lice parasitism (C. rogercresseyi) through the use of antibiotics to control the infestation and the use of vaccines to prevent it, but it presents biological implications for salmon, the marine environment and human health.
