FORTT Z, Antonia; CABELLO C, Felipe  y  BUSCHMANN R, Alejandro. Residues of tetracycline and quinolones in wild fish living around a salmon aquaculture center in Chile. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2007, vol.24, n.1, pp. 14-18. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182007000100002.

The presence of residues of tetracycline, quinolones and antiparasitic drugs was investigated in wild fish captured around salmon aquaculture pens in Cochamó, Region X, Chile. Residues of both antibiotics were found in the meat of two species of wild fish that are consumed by humans, róbalo (Scorpaena hystrio) and cabrilla (Elginops maclovinus). These findings suggest that the antibiotic usage in salmon aquaculture in Chile has environmental implications that may affect human and animal health. More studies are needed in Chile to determine the relevance of these findings for human and animal health and the environment to regulate this use of antibiotics
