It's time to celebrate our oceans! More than that, today serves as a reminder to consider the importance of protecting them and to prioritize sustainable management of their resources.

That's why working to promote better fishing standards in our oceans, assessing the impact fisheries have on fish welfare, and identifying the most effective ways to improve conditions for fish across various fisheries is also part of the equation.

And that's the main objective of our Carefish/catch Project.

Our goals

The welfare of wild-caught fish has been overlooked in practice, research, advocacy, and policy. The Carefish/catch project aims to promote better fishing standards, by addressing 5 main goals:

  • assess global animal welfare impacts in fisheries
  • identify the potential of reducing animal suffering in various fishing methods and species
  • analyse the economic and social feasibility of the improvements suggested
  • raise problem and solution awareness in general and specific audiences
  • implement welfare guidelines into the Friend of the Sea fisheries certification scheme

Our reports

One important objective of the project is to identify keypoints of welfare hazards and suggest improvements to reduce suffering of individuals in specific fishing methods. This would enable the establishment of welfare standards into the fisheries sector throughout a series of recommendations and guidelines to be implemented into fisheries certifications.
