Special Issue "Pathogens of Zoonotic Importance in the Aquatic Environment: Implications for Environmental and Human Health"
Human pathogen transmission in aquatic bird populations, as well as its occurrence in bivalve molluscs and other edible aquatic species, might arise in the presence of contaminated water and sediments. The accelerating antimicrobial resistance by the current overuse of disinfectant solutions in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic may also represent new environmental threats. Thus, by recognizing, through the “One Health” approach, that the health of people is closely connected to the health of animals and our shared environment, this Special Issue aims to comprehensively evaluate the influence of the aquatic environment on the spread of human pathogens, and contribute to the human risk assessment process regarding the presence of these microorganisms in edible aquatic species.
A special issue of Water. Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 December 2021.
