Objectives

1. Estimate the frequency and distribution of increased mortality across the industry.

2. Describe the pathology and severity of eye lesions and estimate the frequency and distribution of these lesions across the industry.

3. Investigate potential tow-, farm-, and fish-level risk factors associated with increased mortality and eye lesion occurrence.

4. Investigate the putative role of sealice in causing this episode of eye lesions.
