About the Webinar & the Dialogue:

The Webinar
This webinar is in celebration of World Veterinary Day and the beginning of a 6-month international conversation (the “Fish Welfare Dialogue”) on numerous issues concerning the human-animal relationship with aquatic animals. It will introduce some of the important issues (from science to philosophy) that affect how non-governmental organizations, governments, animal owners and society at large, might address the welfare of aquatic animals (particularly finfish and invertebrates).

Post-webinar Dialogue & Conference
As part of the Fish Welfare Dialogue, all webinar participants will have the opportunity to discuss these and other issues through web-based discussion forums. With the hopes of developing realistic, practical and optimal approaches for the welfare of all aquatic animals, and the benefit of mankind, these discussions will serve as the basis for refining how aquatic animal welfare should be addressed at an International Conference on Fish Welfare in Munich, Germany in September 2014.

Organizers & Supporters
This webinar has been organized and coordinated by Ludwig-Maximillians University & the World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association. Other organisations are invited to participate in and distribute information on the Fish Welfare Dialogue, future Fish Welfare webinars and the 2014 International Fish Welfare Conference.
