Disseminating scientific-based knowledge is one of our activities to help improving the welfare of farmed fishes and other aquatic species in a practical way. Good communication is fundamental to effectively reach our goals! So, publishing articles in magazines or newspapers may also be part of our actions.
Last month, Joao L. Saraiva and Pablo Arechavala Lopez co-authored an article about guidelines and certifications of fish welfare in aquaculture, together with Morris Villarroel from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM). The article was pulished in The Conversation, the world’s leading publisher of research-based news and analysis!
It was a great opportunity to spread the word and share knowledge about farmed fishes that are relevant to improve their welfare conditions in a practical way.
If you are interested, the article is free and may be accessed at the publisher page here.

FishEthoGroup is a team of motivated professionals focused on improving fish welfare based on their behaviours.
We develop scientific and applied actions to reach our goals by promoting research, helping to disseminate knowledge, giving consultancy, and training about fish welfare.
Want to know more about us? See information below.
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.
