TALK VIETNAM 12/01/12 Shrimp exporters face shut-down due to antibiotic residue. Many local seafood exporters are on the brink of halting operation, or even bankruptcy, as their shrimp exports to Japan have recently been found to contain excessive levels of the antibiotic enrofloxacin.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Vietnamese shrimps bound for Japan last year were 56 times detected to be tainted with enrofloxacin residues exceeding limits . Consequently, Vietnam had to re-import the aquatic products, which the ministry said not only created adverse impact on the reputation of the local industry but could also cause some foreign markets to turn back on Vietnamese seafood.

News 23 May 2012 GLOBAL – Despite the impression left by a recent ABC News story on farmed shrimp, the use of antibiotics is neither a common nor accepted practice in shrimp farming.
In fact, great progress has been made to eliminate antibiotics, and shrimp can now be obtained from certified sources that provide the food safety assurance that consumers demand. Shrimp imports to the United States are subject to multiple controls. The US Food and Drug Administration routinely tests imported seafood. For added assurance, seafood buyers typically require their suppliers to test for illegal substances – a requirement that is now mandatory for certification programs such as Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP), which the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) developed specifically to address concerns such as antibiotics.

PLOS 06/07/15 Identification and Antimicrobial Resistance of Bacteria Isolated from Probiotic Products Used in Shrimp Culture. Abstract Probiotics are increasingly used in aquaculture to control diseases and improve feed digestion and pond water quality; however, little is known about the antimicrobial resistance properties of such probiotic bacteria and to what extent they may contribute to the development of bacterial resistance in aquaculture ponds.
Concerns have been raised that the declared information on probiotic product labels are incorrect and information on bacterial composition are often missing. We therefore evaluated seven probiotics commonly used in Vietnamese shrimp culture for their bacterial species content, phenotypic antimicrobial resistance and associated transferable resistance genes. The bacterial species was established by 16S rRNA sequence analysis of 125 representative bacterial isolates. J Pathog. 2013; 2013: 685193.

EXAMINER 22/05/12 Antibiotic residue and suspected carcinogen found in shrimp. Food safety is a serious matter.
Natural health advocates are deeply concerned about which foods are safe to buy due to possible contamination. Researchers at Texas Tech have shown the validity of such concerns with the finding of evidence of antibiotics, one of which is a suspected human carcinogen, in seafood which is imported into the United States and purchased from grocery store shelves. Researchers at Texas Tech found evidence of this contamination after testing farm-raised shrimp samples of international origin for ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer.”
Ron Kendall, who is director of The Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH) at Texas Tech, has said researchers tested only the muscle tissues which are consumed by people. They discovered that about 10 percent of the 30 samples tested contained evidence of three antibiotics. Environmental Science and Pollution Research - 2011 - Antibiotic contaminants in coastal wetlands from Vietnamese shrimp farming. Background and purpose Shrimp culture has been expanded rapidly in recent years in coastal wetland zone of Vietnam due to favorable natural conditions.
However, this industry has caused several negative impacts to the environment. One of the critical issues is the excessive application of antibiotics including human medicines. Marine Pollution Bulletin Volume 62, Issue 11, November 2011, Antibiotic resistance of bacteria isolated from shrimp hatcheries. Abstract The resistance of bacteria to 12 different antibiotics was investigated in shrimp farms on Donghai Island, China.
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria were found to be widespread in shrimp farms, indicating a high environmental risk. Further, significant differences were found in bacterial strains among farms (ANOVA, p < 0.05), showing resistance to antibiotics such as ampicillin, trimethoprim, compound sinomi, tetracycline, chloramphenicol and cefazolin.
No significant differences in antibiotic resistance were found among 6 hatcheries evaluated in this study (ANOVA, p > 0.05), between exalted and traditional shrimp ponds (ANOVA, p > 0.05), and between cultural ponds and corresponding control water source sites (T-test, p > 0.05).

«Tous les animaux sont égaux, mais certains le sont plus que d'autres.» FOOD SAFETY NEWS 21/05/12 ABC Finds Illegal Antibiotics in Imported Shrimp. Traces of illegal antibiotics are lurking in America’s favorite seafood, according to a new report by ABC World News.
The news outlet tested 30 imported shrimp samples from grocery stores across the country and found three were positive for antibiotics that are banned in the United States. Though the sample size was small, the fact that 10 percent were found to contain illegal drugs is significant considering Americans annually eat 1 billion pounds of shrimp, 90 percent of which is imported from halfway across the world — mostly from Thailand, Indonesia, Ecuador, and China. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration physically inspects less than two percent of imported seafood shipments and even smaller percentage are sampled for drug residue testing.
In fiscal year 2009, for example, the FDA tested .1 percent of all imported seafood products for residues, according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO). Dr. . © Food Safety News. CENTER FOR A LIVABLE FUTURE 08/05/12 Grocery Store Shrimp Contains Drug Resistant Bacteria. A new U.S.
Food and Drug Administration study has found that farmed shrimp can be added to the list of animal protein sold in grocery stores that harbors multi-drug resistant bacteria. BLOG SHRIMP CULTURE 22/04/12 The Use of Antibiotics in Shrimp Farming. The antibiotics most frequently used in aquaculture to combat bacterial diseases are oxytetracycline, florfenicol, sarafloxacin and enrofloxacin.
Globally, other antibiotics such as chlortetracycline, quinolones, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, oxolinic acid, perfloxacin, sulfamethazine, gentamicin and tiamulin are used. Even though they are frequently used on shrimp farms, information related to residues of oxytetracycline and enrofloxacin in Litopenaeus vannamei tissue is very scarce. In an unpublished study performed at the Research Center for Food and Development, Hermosillo, Sonora, México, they administered a diet medicated with enrofloxacin at a level of 200 mg kg-1 for 14 days in an attempt to determine the accumulation and elimination of enrofloxacin and its metabolite ciprofloxacin in a crop of Litopenaeus vannamei.
Subsequently, a diet without the antibiotic was administered for 16 days. The study was carried out under controlled laboratory conditions and on a farm.

Le 25 janvier 2002, « Le comité vétérinaire permanent de l'UE s'accorde sur une suspension des importations de produits d'origine animale en provenance de Chine ». Les produits concernés, en termes de volume sont le miel, la viande de lapin, la volaille et les crustacés, tels que les crevettes. Au sujet des crevettes il s’agit de la présence de chloramphénicol : Des résidus de chloramphénicol ont été trouvés dans des échantillons de crevettes importées de Chine.
La présence de chloramphénicol dans les aliments constitue un risque potentiel pour la santé humaine. Il s'agit d'un antibiotique puissant à spectre large, dont l'UE a interdit l'utilisation chez les animaux producteurs d'aliments depuis 1994.
