A lot of research has been carried out on fish welfare over the last few years. But this knowledge is not always readily available to those who need it. An FHF funded research project named FISHWELL will gather and update our knowledge on fish welfare indicators in Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout, putting it together as an operational handbook for the farmers.
