Last Wednesday, our researcher Caroline Marques Maia helped Murilo Quintiliano from FAI Farms to conduct the interactive webinar "Unlocking the potential of tilapia aquaculture: innovation, welfare and sustainable development", an event in partnership also with The Fish Site. The webinar was in Portuguese and its recording will be made available online soon. It was a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and participate on important discussions about Nile tilapia welfare in aquaculture.
Actions like this are part of our activities, as we believe that disseminating scientific-based knowledge is as important as any other of our actions to reach our goals. Good communication is fundamental to help improving the welfare of farmed fish! We thank Murilo Quintiliano for his invitation to participate in this event and FAI Farms for this opportunity.

We develop scientific and applied actions to reach our goals by promoting research, helping to disseminate knowledge, giving consultancy, and training about fish welfare. Click here to login the platform of our last Fish Welfare Course.
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.
