What we do

Applied science to improve the welfare of farmed aquatic animals

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 behavior of a species to understand how its welfare is affected under farming conditions and what we can do to promote it.

These are the projects we develop: 



We offer fish welfare consultancy around the globe to farmers and stakeholders, providing custom-made welfare solutions based on our scientific and practical fish welfare experience.
