For many years, the Institute has been studying the spread of salmon lice in the Sognefjord, and now it is the turn of the Hardangerfjord.
In order to study the occurrence of salmon lice in the Hardangerfjord, Boxaspen and her colleagues on the cruise have spent several days setting out 16 sea-cages of salmon smolt to act as bait for salmon lice at strategic locations from Ålvik at the northern end of the Hardangerfjord to Bømlo at its south-western end.
The smolt do not carry lice and they will be left in the fjord for two weeks in the hope that they will attract any lice that drift by, so that the scientists can see where the concentration of lice is greatest.
