The virtual Aquatic Animal Welfare Conference 2020 is an international conference aimed at updating advocates on the latest science and campaigns from around the world on aquatic animal welfare. It will cover wild-caught fishes, farmed fishes, octopus and crustaceans. Through presentations, panels, regional strategy workshops, and networking opportunities, advocates can come together to learn, exchange ideas, develop new networks and establish plans for potential future collaborations.
This conference is open to those within the animal protection and environmental movement and scientists in the field. The conference is happening at a critical time to push fishes, crustaceans and octopus up the agenda in the animal protection movement.
In an attempt to make this a truly international conference we have speakers spanning the globe. And we are seeking participants from around the world as well. We hope that you will be able to join us for sessions in real-time where possible. While the conference is advertised in GMT, the recordings will be made available to those that can’t make the talks due to time zone differences and you will have the opportunity to submit further questions to the presenters afterwards, allowing interaction even if you are unable to attend in real-time.
The conference will run over 5 days from Monday 2nd November to Friday 6th November.
