Many drugs are used in hatchery and grow-out operations of shrimp industry. Antimicrobial resistance, short term efficacy of antibiotics and environmental factors make the disease management difficult in shrimp aquaculture. Florefenicol, Sarafloxacin, Oxytetracycline and Enrofloxacin are the frequently used antibiotics in shrimp aquaculture. The use of antibiotics may cause development of antibiotic resistance among pathogens infecting cultured animals and humans. It is important that therapeutic regimes are designed to maximise efficacy and thereby minimise the risk of the development of the resistant pathogens. The design of pharmacokinetic studies in fish and shellfish is necessary prior to use of drugs in aquaculture.
Key words: Antibiotics, Aquaculture, Shrimp, Drugs.
