Improving the welfare of farmed fish

Here's how you can do your bit to help improve the welfare of farmed fish in the UK.

Buying fish in the supermarket

If more consumers insist on higher welfare products, more supermarkets will want to stock them, which will encourage more farmers to improve their farming practices and ultimately more farmed fish will benefit.

If you eat salmon or trout and you're concerned about farmed fish welfare, look for products carrying the RSPCA Assured (previously Freedom Food) logo. 

RSPCA Assured is our farm assurance and food labelling scheme, which aims to ensure that animals are reared, handled, transported and slaughtered according to our strict welfare standards. The Freedom Food website tells you where to buy RSPCA Assured labelled food.
