Animal welfare in aquaculture systems

Animal welfare is of crucial importance for sustainable aquaculture. (© Tobias Lasner)

Aquaculuture is by far the world's fastest growing animal protein producing sector. The rapid expansion during the last decades, however, provoked a scientific as well as a strong public debate about animal welfare in intensive aquaculture production. Still, evaluating and assessing animal welfare in aquaculture is complex not least because of the huge diversity of cutured species. Each species has different requirements with regard to their husbandry conditions arising from their species-specific physiological performance.
