Fish Movement Survey Results
By Thomas Billington and Haven King-Nobles
With billions of fish alive in farms and potentially trillions more caught in the wild each year, it is not surprising that many animal protection organizations are considering how they may be able to improve their welfare. However, fish welfare is a young field, and there are many open questions about how the animal protection movement will engage with it.
Between May and June 2020, Fish Welfare Initiative surveyed 52 organizations on when, where, and how they plan to work for fish. Here we display and analyze the results from this survey. In addition, we reviewed the granting history of three major funding groups (Open Philanthropy Project, EA Animal Welfare Funds, and Animal Charity Evaluators) to assess historical funding for fish and crustacean welfare projects.
