New episodes of our Fish Talk podcast!

We released new episodes of FishEthoBase programme of our Fish Talk podcast! This time the episodes are focused on Beluga (Huso huso), Kaluga (Huso dauricus) and Giant gourami (Osphronemus goramy).

This programme is composed of series of very brief audios focused on fish species with profiles already published in our FishEthoBase. The idea is to give information about natural needs, behaviours or farming conditions of farmed fishes; all this in just a few words - less than 3 min!

If you want to know the programme and listen to the new episodes (series 4), please click here.

Who we are

Who we are

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.

What we stand for

What we stand for

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.

What we do

What we do

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.

Need help?

If you are interested in scientific and technical expertise applied to welfare in fish farming, please contact us.

We develop custom-made welfare solutions for your initiatives, as consultancy in farms or other facilities, tailored courses, guidance, certification requirements or systems, specific research studies and welfare protocols (see What we do).
