From one of my good friends in the international salmon industry I have got
the question, how long can a salmon lice be alive on a dead salmon after
slaughtering, icing, transportation, etc.

We know that salmon lice can be alive ?? attached to wild salmon up to one
week ?? in a river. Tha cooling effect of the ice would make it easier for
the lice to stay alive ?. My guess and first answer is than one week. If
that is true live salmon lice can reach the salmon consumer ?? Hwo can give
me a better and more acurate answer, if possible with references.

In advance many thanks.
