Fish Welfare Online Course

1st Feb 2021 - 4th Feb 2021


Course Description

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 our Fish Welfare Course, 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



The course will be lectured online, and the speakers were carefully selected to be the top international experts in their field. Each lecturer will be free to organise their subject as they deem appropriate, considering the audience and contents in their field of expertise. There will be a focus on practical application of the knowledge acquired during the course, either by thought exercises, problem solving or case-studies.
