Griffin British Isles Briefing Paper on Fish Welfare published in 2002, which set out to provide information on fish welfare to assist readers in making informed decisions on a number of related issues (FSBI 2002). It could be argued that historically, Europe, and the UK in particular, has had a greater focus on animal welfare than North America. For example, the first Cruelty to Animals Act was enacted in the UK in 1835. In 1964, journalist Ruth Harrison drew attention to the increasing confinement of animals used in food production, resulting in a UK commission of inquiry, and ultimately producing the “Brambell Report” and the “Five Freedoms”, designed to improve the manner in which livestock were being raised (Harrison 1964; Brambell 1965).

Animals have been considered to be worthy of moral concern, primarily because they have the capacity to experience pain (see, for example, Ryder 2001). Polls concerning the use of animals in research in general show that 70–80 per cent of the public is supportive of the use of animals in research, but that support is contingent on strict oversight and minimization of pain and distress (Ipsos MORI 2005; Canadian Public Health Association 2001).

These are some of the questions that have been of concern to the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC, the national organization responsible for setting and maintaining animal care and use standards in Canadian science), in particular when the CCAC subcommittee on fish was developing guidelines on: the care and use of fish in research teaching and testing (CCAC 2005). During the same period, a subcommittee of the American Fisheries Society was preparing US Guidelines 2 Science and Governance Issues in Aquaculture Animal Welfare 39 for the Use of Fishes in Research (Nickum et al.
