Topics: TROUT   

Part A gives an overview of fish welfare, outlines what is known about the welfare needs of each species, and conditions that may affect the fulfilment of these needs.

Part B outlines fit-for-purpose welfare indicators for assessing fish welfare in different production systems, such as sea cages and flow-through production systems. Part C adopts the same approach and assembles welfare indicator toolboxes for different routines and operations, such as pumping, crowding, grading, vaccination and slaughter.
