As an alternative to wild-caught fish, fish farming in aquacultures is currently experiencing something of a boom. However, we still know relatively little about the requirements for humane fish farming. For example, how many fish should be kept in a tank to ensure the well-being of a schooling fish?
We therefore commissioned a study from Swiss Animal Protection (SAP). The study assessed aquacultures for edible fish from an animal protection perspective and highlighted potential problem areas, opportunities and risks. Based on the findings, together with SAP we are now reviewing our range and will take measures as necessary.
