  6. The Controversy on Fish Pain: A Veterinarian’s Perspective

    | Contributor(s):: Chatigny, Frederic

    Fish welfare is still a relatively new field. As such, regulations and protocols to ensure fish welfare are currently limited and vary considerably in different jurisdictions. This is in part because of the ongoing controversy as to whether or not fish feel pain. This controversy has persisted...

  7. The psychology of control: Effects of control over supplementary light on welfare of marmosets

    | Contributor(s):: Buchanan-Smith, Hannah M., Badihi, Inbal

    | Contributor(s):: Herwig Grimm, Matthias Eggel, Anna Deplazes-Zemp, Nikola Biller-Andorno

    It is our concern that European Union Directive 2010/63/EU with its current project evaluation of animal research in the form of a harm–benefit analysis may lead to an erosion of the credibility of research. The HBA assesses whether the inflicted harm on animals is outweighed by potential...
