Scientists recognise that fish, just like other farmed animals, experience pleasure and pain. Despite this, fish are given very few legal protections.
In the UK, up to 77 million fish are raised and killed every single year – that's over two per second.
Animal Equality is urging UK governments to put in place meaningful, specific protections for aquatic animals at the time of slaughter. This is the very least these animals deserve and yet currently they are not afforded even this.
We're not alone. Our open letter, addressed to ministers across the UK, has been signed by 70 world-leading animal welfare experts, academics and animal protection organisations.
