Arguably, the first focus of aquaculture should be raising healthy fish. This presents a number of challenges with respect to determining and implementing appropriate conditions. For example, there are currently few drugs registered for use in the aquaculture setting. While it is unethical, not to say illegal, to permit food to enter the market place unless drugs used to treat the fish have been found to be safe, and the withdrawal times have been adhered to, animal welfare considerations require treatment of diseased fish in a captive aquaculture situation, whether or not those fish might experience similar disease states in the wild.

In species such as brown trout and Atlantic salmon that have been farmed intensively for a fair number of generations, there is now 1 Animal Welfare in Aquaculture 29 strong evidence that fish from domesticated strains show weaker behavioural and physiological responses to disturbance than do their wild counterparts (Huntingford 2004). Where fish are being reared for food rather than for restocking purposes, and setting aside the problem of escapees and natural gene pools, from a welfare perspective, perhaps these are the fish we should be farming.

In addition, I concentrate on finfish, though the welfare of shellfish (particularly decapod crustaceans) is also a matter of concern. Definitions of Animal Welfare The concept of animal welfare is complex and hard to define and the relationship between welfare and suffering even more so (Dawkins 2006; FSBI 2002; Duncan 2006; Fraser 1999). It might therefore be argued that it is not an appropriate F. uk K. Culver, D. V. 2008 21 22 F.
