Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the mouth of a salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis). The parasite is host specific to some of our well-known salmonid fishes such as the sea trout (Salmo trutta), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), where it feeds on the skin, mucus and blood from the fish. Magnification: x1900 when printed at 10cm wide.
