The behaviour and welfare of fish is an essential topic that is gaining momentum in aquaculture, fisheries and academia. However, the correct assessment of the welfare state of fish and the promotion of best practices that ensure good welfare must rely on a) solid scientific knowledge of the biology of fish and b) appropriate design and use of technical solutions. Fish welfare has largely progressed in recent years both in research and industry, and all stakeholders should be able to benefit from these advancements. The dialogue between researchers, industry and consumers ultimately benefits all parties involved: fish live better lives, scientists have better research models, industry has better fish with higher market value and consumers eat a better product. Knowledge is therefore key for better welfare of fish.
