Fish welfare online course

The welfare of fish is growing to be an essential topic in present day aquaculture, fisheries, and academia. The promotion of best practices towards good welfare must rely on a) solid scientific knowledge of the biology of fish and b) appropriate design and use of technical solutions. We are proud to present the second edition of the Fish Welfare Course, at the Centro de Cièncias do Mar, where once again top international experts in their fields will lecture each module. This second edition of the course will be held online, and the intensive 4-day training programme will cover:

  • Sentience, pain, and mental aspects of fish welfare
  • Physiology of stress and sensory systems in fish
  • Applied biology and fish welfare
  • Operational welfare indicators and improvement tools
  • Policy, law, and welfare certification
