  • Description
  • Details

An essential purchase for fish veterinarians, fish farmers, fish biologists and those involved in the aquaculture industry and its regulation

Fish have the same stress response and powers of nociception as mammals. Their behavioral responses to a variety of situations suggest a considerable ability for higher level neural processing - a level of consciousness equivalent perhaps to that attributed to mammals.

Each chapter of this book has been written by specialists in their field. The subject matter is wide ranging and covers in detail concepts of animal welfare in addition to more specific aspects of fish welfare. Philosophical concepts of welfare are discussed along with more practical areas of fish welfare encompassing all husbandry and management activities that have a potential to affect the welfare of the fish in our care.
