Tassal and the Rise of Superbugs

Salmon farmer Tassal increased its antibiotic use by a whopping 74% last year -- they used 30 times more antibiotics than their Tasmanian competitors combined.

With recent news of more than 1000 cases of almost-untreatable superbugs in Australia last year, it is crucial Tassal is open and honest about their antibiotic use. Especially when their drug of choice, oxytetracycline, is listed by the World Health Organisation as 'very important for human health'.
