Use of chemicals and biological products in Asian aquaculture and their potential environmental risks: a critical review
This review reviewed recent information on the use of chemical and biological products in the most important Asian aquaculture producing countries and briefly summarize their main potential environmental impacts to form a basis for developing environmental risk assessment studies of the chemicals used in Asian Aquaculture.
Effects assessment of chemicals used in aquaculture
Evaluating the use of chemicals applied in aquaculture farms and their harmful effects to aquatic organisms suggested a potential biodiversity loss in the aquatic ecosystems which might compromise the services provided by the ecosystems in a near future.
Environmental performance of organic and conventional salmon production in Norway
Globally, aquaculture production of seafood has been rising steadily, surpassing capture fisheries in volumes in 2011. Atlantic salmon is one of the economically more valuable farmed species. They
Is lower intensity aquaculture a valuable means of producing food? An evaluation of its effects on near-shore and inland waters
The effects of aquaculture on the environment have been the subject of much examination, but most of the focus has been on shrimp and salmon. These are not the most common species grown in

This thesis shows that intensive aquaculture production constitutes an important source of environmental contamination andAntiparasitic treatments generally pose the greatest ecological risks as compared to the other compound groups.
Nutrition in organic aquaculture: an inquiry and a discourse
There is a future for the development of organic aquaculture but its success depends on new knowledge and technical development to meet consumers’ growing interest and the industry has to utilize the research results and update and modify the criteria and standards and thus provide high-quality products.


Environmental impact of chemical wastes produced by the salmon aquaculture industry
A project in progress is described that is aimed at identifying the source of chemical wastes of salmon aquaculture in the Bay of Fundy, the quantities released, their distribution, and environmental fate, and the effects of chemical Wastes on important fisheries resources.
The control of chemicals used in aquaculture in Europe
It is recommended that all European marine aquaculture producers adopt a code of best practice for the use of medicinal and other chemicals their industry and that the supply and use of fish medicines is uniformly regulated in the EU and supported by appropriate codes ofbest practice.
Antibiotic use in aquaculture: development of antibiotic resistance – potential for consumer health risks*
Fish farming is now a sufficiently large and mature an industry to have justified the development of an effective range of vaccines that have largely supplanted the use of antimicrobial agents for most bacterial diseases in salmonid farming in Europe and North America.
Aquaculture: The Ecological Issues
This chapter discusses the effect of Aquaculture Wastes On Ecological Systems, the role of regulation in Delivering Sustainability, and other key issues.
A Review of the Impact of Parasitic Copepods on Marine Aquaculture
The global importance of parasitic copepods as disease-causing agents in marine aquaculture is discussed and a brief review of the environmental and husbandry factors that may affect parasiticCopepod abundance and the potential roles that parasiticcopepods play as vectors for other disease agents are provided.

Global efforts are needed to promote more judicious use of prophylactic antibiotics in aquaculture as accumulating evidence indicates that unrestricted use is detrimental to fish, terrestrial animals, and human health and the environment.
[Antibiotics and aquaculture in Chile: implications for human and animal health].
The Chilean situation triggers important concerns because it includes the use of fluoroquinolones in aquaculture, that are not biodegradable and are able to remain in the environment for years as well as being still effective in treating human infections.
Responsible Marine Aquaculture
This book addresses this topical issue, concentrating on marine aquaculture, with a focus on minimal net utilization of natural resources; the production of healthy products for food; appropriate regulations and policies; and case studies from various geographical settings, including North and Latin America, Asia and the Pacific.
