Antibiotics in fishes

Use of antibiotics is strongly linked with antibiotic resistance. Just like in humans, antibiotic overuse and misuse in rearing food animals such as chicken, fish, dairy and pigs is known to cause emergence and spread of resistance. Besides food and direct contact, waste from such animal and aquaculture farms carrying antibiotic residues and resistant bacteria spreads resistance to larger environment and affects human health.
