We are super proud and excited to announce the launch of our Aquaculture Fish Welfare Training Guide for fish farmers and stakeholders in Nigeria. This has been a long but truly rewarding process for us and we are glad to share this major milestone in advancing welfare practices for farmed fish – to improve their health, well-being, and productivity.
This training guide establishes systematic and holistic guidance to educate fish farmers on the need for fish welfare, global best practices of fish welfare, and how to adapt these practices to local fish farm settings and fish species in the country. The training guide is for fish farmers and all who work with, contribute to or support their work. These include veterinarians, animal health and production practitioners, government administrators, policymakers and researchers in fisheries and aquaculture, fish welfare groups, advocates and organizations, certification bodies and export institutions, international organizations that support fish farmers, and private sector companies that purchase fish products. This inclusivity of stakeholders is important to improve their knowledge of expected fish welfare standards and ensure that demand for fish welfare practices from fish farmers is sustained in their engagements.
We appreciate the support and contribution of global fish welfare specialists/advocates who have carefully reviewed this training guide, provided their feedback, and validated the modules and content for deployment. We also value the feedback of fish farmers who engaged in our pilot training using the training guide and provided us with useful feedback in refining and adapting the content and delivery of the training guide to fit local contexts.
Thanks to the Effective Altruism (EA) Funds, we are able to provide you with a free copy of the Aquaculture Fish Welfare Training Guide. You can fill out the form to receive your copy and feel free to reach out to us via email@example.com if you have any questions, inquiries, or feedback.
