Alter for fish (A2F)

Efficacy and safety of alternative(s) to antibiotics for farmed fish (Ecoantibio 2 project: 2018 - 2020)

Project Summary :

Due to the location of fish production in open environments (rivers, ponds), the use of antibiotics in this sector contributes to the development of antibiotic-resistant (ABR) ichthyopathogenic bacteria and to the diffusion in the environment of bacteria and ABR genes and antibiotic residues that can have an impact on public health. Reducing the use of antibiotics and preventing antibiotic resistance are national and international issues that require research into the sanitary, zootechnical and medical prevention of infectious diseases and, in particular, the development of biocontrol methods. The objective of the A2F project is to i) identify possibilities for "alternative" practices and treatments that aim to reduce the use of antibiotics and the conditions for their adoption in the field through qualitative research interviews with rainbow trout breeders and aquaculture veterinarians, (ii) to determine their efficacy and safety against furunculosis in rainbow trout under experimental conditions and to evaluate the impact of their administration on the use of antibiotics and the risk of development of SAB bacteria in fish and their environment under natural exposure conditions in farms.
