FishEthoBase programme

The idea of this programme is to give some information about farmed fishes related to their natural needs, behaviours or farming conditions that are relevant to take into account to assess and improve their welfare; all this in just a few words - less than 3 min. Thus, the programme is composed of series of very brief podcasts focused on fish species with profiles already published in our FishEthoBase, the first online database to assemble ethological knowledge of farmed fishes. The episodes already released are displayed below:
