A new research project will conduct a first study of the way fish die in fishery with the aim to examine how billions of fish living in mid waters die in trawling, and whether fishing methods can be developed to support a more humane killing of these sentient animals. Eurogroup for Animals’ member Animal Protection Denmark and the Danish Pelagic Producers Organization are the architects behind the multi-year project. Scientists from the Swedish University of Agriculture, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Aqua) and the Danish Institute of Technology will carry out the research. The project is funded by Open Philanthropy, an American research and grantmaking organisation.
