Research projects involving fish

The Research Council of Norway, in collaboration with the Ministry of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs, asked Norecopa to examine the need for research within welfare of fish used in research. In the Spring of 2009 a working group of 8 members was appointed to conduct this task. The Report (103 pages, in Norwegian) was entitled:
Fisk i forskning - miljøkrav og velferdsindikatorer hos fisk (Fish in research - environmental requirements and welfare indicators in fish) Utvalgsrapport, Havbruksprogrammet, Norges Forskningsråd, 2009.
