Guidelines development and scientific uncertainty: use of previous case studies to promote efficient production of guidelines on the care and use of fish in research, teaching and testing
Contributor(s):: Griffin, G., Gauthier, C.
The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) develops guidelines on issues of current and emerging concern in response to the needs of the scientific community, advances in animal care, and the needs of the CCAC Assessment Programme. Guidelines are developed by subcommittees of experts, and are...
Head-only electrical stunning and bleeding of African catfish ( Clarias gariepinus ): assessment of loss of consciousness
Contributor(s):: Lambooij, E., Kloosterboer, R. J., Gerritzen, M. A., Vis, J. W. van de
The objective was to evaluate the welfare implications of electrical stunning prior to gill-cutting of farmed African catfish as an alternative to live chilling in combination with gutting. Electroencephalogram (EEG) and electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings, in combination with observation of...
Live chilling of turbot and subsequent effect on behaviour, muscle stiffness, muscle quality, blood gases and chemistry
Contributor(s):: Roth, B., Imsland, A. K., Foss, A.
During the commercial slaughter of farmed turbot (Scophthalmus maximus), a total of 67 fish were, on six occasions, removed from their rearing conditions at 14 degrees C and put, as is standard commercial practice, into chilled seawater (-1.5 to -0.8 degrees C) to monitor behavioural, muscular,...

The effect of substrate availability on behavioural and physiological indicators of welfare in the African cichlid ( Oreochromis mossambicus )
Contributor(s):: Galhardo, L., Correia, J., Oliveira, R. F.
Male African cichlids (Oreochromis mossambicus) establish territories on the substrate upon which spawning pits are dug, thus attracting females. The substrate, therefore, plays a very significant role in its lifecycle. The effects of substrate access on behaviour and physiology in captivity were...
