The aim of this chapter is to present information about current knowledge regarding antibiotic use in aquaculture systems. This will include basic information, for example, mechanisms of action and resistance, the role of antibiotics in disease control and the putative negative impact of the use of antimicrobial agents in fish farms, and also some alternative strategies that could reduce the use of these chemicals.
High swine prices and profitability for farms may be hiding deep-seated problems in swine health. The disease situation for swine has not changed significantly, and the level of feed management remains low. According to available statistics, average litter size is a mere 15.9 head per sow, a far cry from the 25 head per sow levels seen in Denmark and the United States.
