Product title :

Monitoring and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in microorganisms associated with aquatic animals

Author(s) : P. Smith, V. Alday-Sanz, J. Matysczak, G. Moulin, C.R. Lavilla-Pitogo & D. Prater

Summary :

The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Aquatic Animal Health Code recommends that programmes for the monitoring and surveillance of antimicrobial resistance in microorganisms associated with aquatic animals be initiated by the appropriate authorities. This paper discusses the classes of bacteria to be studied in such programmes and the methods of sample collection to be employed. It also discusses the susceptibility test protocols appropriate for use in such programmes, the interpretive criteria that should be applied to the data they generate and the form in which the output of such programmes should be reported.
