BACFISHRES aims to determine to what extent bacterial species present in fish or other fishery products could constitute a pool of antibiotic-resistant bacteria carrying genes which can be transmitted to human flora.

This project proposes to assess the presence of antibiotic- resistant bacteria in aquatic products from both fisheries and husbandry in order to identify any possible transfer of human commensal bacteria resistance genes, either by direct contact or via consumption, the aim being to increase knowledge in this industry. The study focuses on raw materials (consumption) professionals (occupational health) and effluents (the environment).
