Cleaner fish are increasingly being deployed in aquaculture as a means of biological control of parasitic sea lice, and, consequently, the farming of wrasse and lumpfish, the main cleaner fish species in current use in salmon farming, is now one of the fastest expanding aquaculture, sectors with over 40 hatcheries in Norway alone. This book reviews and presents new knowledge on the biology of the utilised cleaner fish species, and provides protocols in cleaner fish rearing, deployment, health, and welfare. 

The latest knowledge is presented on specialist technical areas, such as: cleaner fish nutrition; genetics; immunology and vaccinology; transport; and more. Contributions from over 60 leading researchers and producers give an exciting mix of information and debate. Written by a team of internationally-recognised experts in cleaner fish biology, culture, and deployment this book will be an essential purchase for hatchery managers, salmonid producers, fish farm operatives, researchers, regulators, students, and enthusiasts working with, and interested in, cleaner fish.
