Today our Summer Shoal 2022 counted with more interesting talks. We had speakers from the production sector and from organizations working on fish welfare, as well as an entire session dedicated to the presentation of our new Carefish Catch project, which aims to promote better fishing standards.
To finish the lectures, we had the session 'the wake' promoted by the DeMos institute, which was an a memorable artistic performance conducted together with the participants. It was carried out within the Carefish Catch project in order to better connect the participants with fish.
At the end of the day we had a dinner closing the event, which counted with small tributes to the members of our team who were mainly responsible for the realization of this unique event!
Thank you very much for all the ones that participated on this edition of our event. We look forward for the next Sumer Shoal!

We are a non-profit association bridging the gaps between science and the stakeholders in the aquaculture sector: producers, certifiers, retailers, NGOs, policy makers and consumers. Our goal is to study and improve the welfare of farmed fishes and other aquatic animals by applying ethological scientific knowledge into best practices in fish farming.
Throughout the years, our team has been involved in many areas of the aquaculture sector, from scientific research to campaigning, from auditing to policy. We use that expertise to promote the welfare of fishes through many initiatives with our partners and collaborators.
We develop science-based solutions to assess and improve the welfare of captive and wild-caught fishes. In our approach, we apply a strong background in aquaculture and ethology to address the welfare of fishes. We use state-of-the-art knowledge on the behaviour of a species to understand how its welfare is affected under farming conditions and what we can do to promote it.
