New podcast episode!

Fair-fish database programme features short audio episodes from our Fish Talk podcast. These audios focus on fish species with profiles already in the fair-fish database. We aim to provide insights into natural needs, behaviors, farming conditions, and welfare hazards of fishes, as well as other aquatic animals, all in just a few minutes.

We recently launched a new type of episode. It's our first one on a fished species, specifically the Peruvian anchoveta (Engraulis ringens) caught using purse seine fishing—a profile now available in the fair-fish database's catch branch.

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).
