Abstract

Antibiotics are not only used for the treatment of infections in humans but are also used in livestock, aquaculture and food. Antibiotics are used to control disease attacks or protect against bacterial contamination that causes disease. The use of antibiotics or antimicrobials in food is often combined with processing. Research on disease control in aquaculture is still limited to the use of chemicals such as formalin, malachite green and several types of antibiotics such as chloramfenicol. The use of antibiotics often does not follow the recommended rules, for example too low or repeatedly, as a result bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is influenced by the environment. Good environmental management or health management is needed in the management of aquaculture and other livestock. The role of the government and related agencies is also needed in dealing with this problem.
