Fish issues

Animal welfare

The animal welfare of fish is largely unknown territory. With aquaculture it is however possible to indicate how the production system influences the natural behaviour and health of the fish. It is also possible to assess the influence of the feed on the natural behaviour and health of the fish. There is still too little information on the welfare of wild caught fish. The welfare is at least linked to the method of the individual fishermen, but that is hard to catch in a general assessment per species. Therefore, animal welfare is not taken into account in the assessment of wild fish.
