Improving the quality of life of farmed fish, it is possible !

Researchers working on the COPEWELL project have studied breams, sea bass … to determine if they are well suited for an aquaculture environment. To do this, they used a preference test, where the fish got to choose the place in the basin they preferred, they inferred the stress factors affecting the health of the animals and they put forwards solutions to improve farmed fish welfare.
