The use of antibiotic therapy in aquaculture inevitably leads to the emergence of resistance in the target bacteria and a reduction of the efficacy of this method of disease control. It is argued that a better understanding of the aetiology of aquatic animal diseases and the potential of antibiotics to control disease losses is essential if we are to achieve a more prudent use of this therapy. The ability to detect resistance in target bacteria will be central if we are to use these agents wisely; the methods available to measure bacterial susceptibility are critically analysed.
