Description 
Summary

In 1991, the then Department of the Marine instigated a sea lice monitoring programme for finfish farms in Ireland and in 1993, it became a nationwide programme. This spatial dataset is the location for samples where results presented indicate the mean ovigerous sea lice levels and mean mobile sea lice levels for Lepeophtheirus salmonis and Caligus elongatus. Total mobile levels estimate successful infestation levels. Ovigerous lice levels estimate successful breeding female populations. Effective parasite control is characterised by a drop in lice levels on subsequent inspections.
