Benchmark Insights — Issue 2

Society’s evolving views on Animal Welfare are shaping aquaculture practices

We are delighted to have published our second edition of ‘Benchmark Insights’, entitled  ‘Welfare in aquaculture: drivers, trends and best practice’.

Through a series of interviews, this second edition  brings together scientists, academics, producers and investors to talk about how views on animal welfare have evolved in aquaculture and in our society, and the impact this is having in the industry.

Topics such as “Welfare during fish harvesting”, the “Power of genetics in creating healthy and robust animals”, “Happy fish, happy farmers, healthy business “ are all discussed, explored, experiences and best practices shared to help further the development and improvement of fish and shrimp welfare in aquaculture.
