First know your fish!
In the freely accessible online database FishEthoBase, we collect and systematise existing knowledge about a growing number of fish species that are farmed and fattened in aquaculture. On this basis, we formulate recommendations to practitioners: How can the welfare of farmed fish be improved? Which fish species are best suited to live a good life in captivity? The FishEthoBase also identifies gaps in knowledge and stimulates further research.
Based on this current state of ethological (behavioural) knowledge, the researchers of our FishEthoGroup advise interested fish farmers in online courses and on site seminars with the aim of improving the welfare of their fish as much as possible..
