Today! Round table of fish as so-called animals breeding

25 października 2022

Today at 6 p.m. we are meeting to talk about fish as animals, the so-called breeding.

The issue of fish farming is still neglected in the public debate. The fish are invisible, mute and unprotected. Aquaculture in Poland is over 44,000 TONNES of fish killed annually. The European Funds for Fisheries program amounts to over EUR 500,000,000 of EU support in the years 2021-2027.

In today’s conversation, we will try to answer the questions about how fish production affects the environment, climate, feed production, and the condition of waters.

The project „Bringing fish back to water during the elections” consists of 4 round tables. The first one will take place today at 6 p.m. Polish time. We will invite both the decision-making party and the representatives of the activist and expert side to each meeting. As part of our discussions, we want to broaden the public and political debate on the rights and welfare of fish and the impact of fisheries and aquaculture on biodiversity, health and climate.
