How can we do to ensure that harvested fish for processing are totally free of antibiotics residues?
October 08, 2015, 03:44 PM

Strict procedures have been respected during the aquaculture and sampling for banned antibiotics residues tests:

1.    The use of chemicals and antibiotics in aquaculture is required to be recorded and in compliance with current regulations and standards.

2.    The competent authority in charge of food safety carries out regular control and inspections, including the use of chemicals and antibiotics in aquaculture.

3.    The third party undertakes regular control and inspections  to ensure the compliance with current regulations.

4.    Before harvesting, processing establishment will come to the farm and sample at each pond for antibiotics tests. Only in case of negative testing result, fish can be harvested and supply to processing plants.
