The use of anti-biotics in the aquaculture industry has been widespread and beneficial- but it has now progressed to overuse. Injudicious use of antibiotics in aquatic animals has led to antibiotic resistance.

This has, in turn, led to production crashes and losses to farmers engaged in aquaculture.
