What are some of the welfare issues in farming salmon?


Well some of the welfare issues in
farming salmon are similar to those in land-based farming systems for example
the amount of space provided to fish, fish husbandry procedures, handling of
fish, the way fish are transported, and of course the way fish are killed. But the
key difference obviously between land based farming systems and salmon
aquaculture is the fact that fish live in water, they’re aquatic animals and the
importance of water quality and the impact that has on fish welfare can’t be
understated.
