Environmental risk in aquaculture: What do farmers think?
Microbes like bacteria and viruses are capable of becoming resistant to the substances designed to control them. To prevent the rise and spread of disease, WorldFish is using the One Health approach to understand antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in aquaculture.
