Course "Anesthesia for fish in aquaculture research"


Aquaculture, probably the fastest growing food-producing sector, now accounts for nearly 50 percent of the world’s food fish. Research is necessary to assure a sustainable development of this business. Fish are vertebrate animals that should been given the same considerations to welfare and protection from harm as all other research animals. Anesthesia in fish can seem complicated as the fish live in water and they are poikiloterm with more complex metabolism adapted to surrounding temperature. We do not recognize facial or body expressions of pain as easily as in land living animals and their perception of pain can be difficult to evaluate. This course will focus on anesthesia of fish and research activities related to farm fish.
