Millions of lumpfish are being farmed in Norway every year for the sole purpose of eating lice from salom in the aquaculture industry.
The lumpfish stops eating lice when it reaches maturity at about 18 months. It is then important to find alternative use for this valuable recource after its lice eating period to exploit lumpfish in a sustainable manner.
