Petition Calling on the European Commission to Improve Fish Welfare Standards Receives Over 150,000 Signatures

A new petition, sponsored by farm animal welfare organization Compassion in World Farming, is urging the European Commission to improve animal welfare standards for farmed fish. In May 2020, the Commission announced that it would be doing a full revision of animal welfare legislation as part of the European Union’s Farm to Fork Strategy. The petition, which has garnered over 150,000 signatures, urges the Commission to consider fish welfare standards during their review.
