AN URGENT CALL FOR MULTI-SECTORAL ACTION PLANS ON ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE
The increasing awareness about antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in agriculture can be attributable to the rising political dialogues on food safety and security.
What is unique about agriculture, including aquaculture, is that it can be seen as an interactive platform between food security, the environment, and human health. Hence a clear example of the One Health concept. More so, how the use of antibiotics in farming animals can have an impact on the environment as well as on human health.
Furthermore, aquaculture is vital in comparing the use of antibiotics in any of these areas. Water as an element is also essential because water, one of the primary vectors in the spread of AMR, connects the environment to animals and humans when contacting with contaminated water.
