The RSPCA arranged a meeting on 23 February 2021 entitled Focus on Fish, which contained several relevant presentations. There was a session on Fish Welfare, including fish behaviour and using analgesia in fishes.
The Norwegian National Committee has sent a recommendation to the regulatory authorities to validate a method for obtaining DNA from fish using skin and mucus material. This is described here in Norwegian.
