Summer Shoal on Fish Welfare 2023
fair-fish and its partners proudly present the 5th edition of the Summer Shoal. The topic of "fish welfare" is highly relevant. This is the time for stakeholders to meet, dialogue, evaluate findings, and develop solutions for the welfare of fishes.
Two full days of oral presentations by keynote speakers - outdoors near the beach, followed by animated discussions among the participants seated in a circle under the trees. Having a small group of participants will foster dialogue and networking. There will be no laser pointers, no projections - but many opportunities to further discuss fish welfare issues. A unique exchange among experts with different backgrounds and interests: scientists, consumers, representatives of NGOs, retail, policy, certification, and industry.
The 2023 edition will once again take place in the Algarve in southern Portugal, in the lovely small resort of Pedras d’el Rei at the Atlantic coast. Further information on the location you can find here.
