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 fish and other aquatic animals by applying ethological scientific knowledge into best practices in fish farming.
We develop science-based solutions to assess and improve the welfare of captive and wild-caught fish. In our approach, we apply a strong background in aquaculture and ethology to address the welfare of fish. We use state-of-the-art knowledge on the behavior of a species to understand how its welfare is affected under farming conditions and what we can do to promote it.
