Meet the salmon louse, a parasite costing hundreds of millions each year.  Just like bacteria and crop pests they're becoming drug resistant, so R&D money is flowing.  Integrated resistance management, new drugs, cleaner fish, functional feeds, vaccines, breeding programmes, physical removal and careful location of farms all have a part to play.

To all of our colleagues wherever you work: these things will keep evolving and  costing, so don't let up.  To everyone else: think, because the world needs food and the growers need bright ideas.
