Aquaculture recovery depends on managing bacteria antibiotic resistance
MetadataShow full item record
The two common pathogens in marine and freshwater environments known to scientists as Vibrio spp. and Aeromonas spp. are resistant to antibiotics widely used in aquaculture feeds. This was shown in a survey using bacterial isolates collected from fish and shrimp tissues and rearing waters in farms and hatcheries in Panay Island. Researchers Eduardo Leaño of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, Ian Macrae of Aquatic Animal Health Research Institute, Thailand and Valeric Ingalls of United Kingdom's University of Stirling jointly conducted the survey.
