- Chemical usage, including antibiotics, is a critical issue in aquaculture with potentially severe impacts on human and ecosystem health. In May 2007, the World Health Organization convened a meeting of experts to determine which antibiotics are critical to human health and should be used in humans only, and not in aquaculture and other animal breeding. The list of restricted antibiotics is contained in the document: Critically Important Antimicrobials for Human Medicine: Categorization for the Development of Risk Management Strategies to Contain Antimicrobial Resistance Due to Non-Human Antimicrobial Use.
- General information on antimicrobial resistance.
- Information on chemical use in the salmon sector.
Evaluation & Certification
- The Global Aquaculture Performance Index (GAPI) utilizes a statistical methodology to evaluate regional marine aquaculture performance and to evaluate the performance of third party certifications and standards.
- The Seafood Ecology Research Group and the Coastal Alliance for Aquaculture Reform both have produced a comparative analyses of various farmed Salmon certification schemes: an Aquaculture Standards Benchmark and a Resource Guide to Farmed Salmon Certifications.
