- Humane Slaughter Association
- Award Date:
- To support research on ways to improve the welfare of wild-caught fish.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of £430,915 ($570,402.19 at time of conversion) over two years to the Humane Slaughter Association (HSA) to support research on ways to improve the welfare of wild-caught fish. This will allow HSA to seek proposals for a peer-reviewed and published systematic review of current fish slaughter practices, potential changes to the catching process to minimize suffering, and new stunning methods that could be more humane than current practices, economically viable for wide adoption, and feasible for on-ship use.
This follows Open Philanthropy's June 2017 grant and falls within its focus area of farm animal welfare.
