Raise awareness of the guidelines developed by the AAWWG (Aquatic Animal Welfare Working Group) with industry and review their adoption, uptake rates and utility
This project is aimed at assessing the success of the work undertaken by the Aquatic Animal Welfare Working Group (AAWWG), covering the four aquatic sectors commercial capture fishing, aquaculture, recreational fishing, ornamental fish and restaurants holding live seafood. Through the use of workshop(s) it will determine how well welfare guidelines developed in the earlier program (2005 - 2013) and other subsequently developed material are being used by industry and identify any reasons for lack of adoption. The workshop(s) will provide advice and guidance to FRDC as to the need for further work to fill information gaps or modify any materials that are difficult to use.
