Description

The FAO/AAHRI Expert Workshop on Improving Biosecurity through Prudent and Responsible Use of Veterinary Medicines in Aquatic Food Production was convened in Bangkok, Thailand, from 15 to 18 December 2009, to understand the current status of the use of antimicrobials in aquaculture, and to discuss the concerns and impacts of their irresponsible use on human health, the aquatic environment and trade. The discussions became the basis for drafting recommendations targeted at government and private sectors, and for developing guiding principles on the responsible use of antimicrobials in aquaculture to be considered as part of future FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (CCRF) Technical Guidelines for Responsible Fisheries on Prudent and Responsible Use of Veterinary Medicines in Aquaculture. Part 1 of this publication contains 15 technical background papers presented during the expert workshop, contributed by 29 specialists. Part 2 contains the highlights of the expert workshop.
