Research seat on the Atlantic

Faro, the capital of the Algarve on Portugal's southern coast, is home to the large marine research institute (CCMAR) of the local university. In summer 2018, CCMAR and fair-fish agreed to work together. On this basis, we founded our Fish Ethology and Welfare Group (FishEthoGroup) in Faro at the beginning of 2019. The group has a workspace at CCMAR and access to the laboratory for fish welfare studies.

Near Faro, we held our third Summer Shoal in September 2019; unfortunately, it had to be cancelled in 2020 and in 2021 due to the pandemic.
