The idea has been around for a long time, but it looks like there is a new commercial operation breeding them.
They used to import wrasse from the south coast to do the job but obviously they've got specialist wrasse to do the job now. All they need to clean their act up now is to find something to eat all the poo mountains under the nets.

Whilst they are not specialist "cleaners", (perhaps "opportunist cleaners" would be more accurate) increased numbers of Goldsinney and Corkwing wrasse around salmon breeding cages have been a feature for some time - an example being at Furnace Pier.
