II Roundtable -Fish Welfare, 13.12
We invite you to a roundtable on „Fish Welfare vs. Climate & Biodiversity” organized within the framework of the ongoing project „Bringing fish back to water during the election” 🐟.
The discussion will be held on the 6th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court ruling on carp – a battle led by Attorney Karolina Kuszlewicz.
Fish are farmed animals. We kill more than a trillion fish annually in an inefficient food production system. Decision-makers do not notice fish as sentient beings or as so-called farmed animals, whose protection must be regulated by law.
Fish farming affects biodiversity, water resources, drug use and antibiotic resistance.
The „Bringing fish back to water during the elections” project consists of 4 roundtables. Both the decision-making side and representation from the activist and expert side are invited to each meeting. As part of the discussions held, we want to broaden the public and political debate on fish rights and welfare, and the impact of fisheries and aquaculture on biodiversity, health and climate.
Experts, activists and decision-makers will participate in the debate:
