Field Visits to Fish Farms in China (2022)

Between October and November 2022, FWI worked with the International Cooperation Committee of Animal Welfare (ICCAW) to investigate the welfare status of commonly farmed species in China and deepen understanding of current Chinese aquaculture practices and systems.


This report details our fieldwork and findings from studying 12 freshwater fish farms in Guangdong, Shanghai, and Jiangsu provinces: five commercial farms and seven small-scale family farms.

We recommend you read the Executive Summary linked below for the main findings—the full report was written in Chinese and was converted to an English version using Google Translate. The report, therefore, may not have consistent readability.
