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.

The preliminary programme for this Summer Shoal 2022 is already online!

Summer Shoal is always a special event. A circle of discussion, under the sky, by the sea, with no technological aids. It is focused to stimulate the exchange of knowledge among scientists, professionals, animal welfare organisations, and decision makers.

If you are interested, come to share knowledge and discuss data and ideas about the behaviours and welfare of captive or wild caught fish and other aquatic species in a beautiful location with leading scientists, important actors in the Fish Industry and other interested professionals.

New chapter published!

An important part of our activities is spreading the word and sharing knowledge about fish behavior and welfare. We believe that scientific dissemination is as important as any other of our actions to help improving the welfare of farmed fishes in a practical way.

As part of this, João Saraiva and Pablo Arechavala from our team, together with Lynne Sneddon, recently published a chapter about challenges in fish farming in the new book 'The Routledge Handbook of Animal Welfare'. We are proud of this chapter. 

You can find the book here.
