CHAMPIONING ETHICAL PRACTICES
FOR THE WELLBEING OF AQUATIC LIFE

OUR APPROACH

PROJECT DESIGN, EXECUTION AND MANAGEMENT

From the initial concept to completion, we design, manage, and deliver successful projects. With over a decade of experience, we've formed partnerships at every project stage, integrating expert insights through our vast network and collaborative approach.

WELFARE ASSESSMENTS

We can evaluate aquatic animal farms using existing assessment protocols when available. If lacking, we rely on current scientific knowledge to gauge potential stress levels. Research on aquatic animal welfare is limited compared to land animals, making projects in this field innovative.

PEER-REVIEWED PUBLICATIONS AND PROFESSIONAL PRESENTATIONS

From prestigious journals to impactful conferences worldwide, we excel in crafting and presenting aquatic-focused research. Our track record boasts high-level outputs, demonstrating expertise in various writing styles.
