Swansea University will be delivering two presentations at Aquaculture UK about their new tool for improving the welfare of lumpfish
Aquaculture UK is taking place in Aviemore on 3-5 May.
Swansea University will be delivering an exciting workshop at the Aquaculture UK conference titled “Tools for improving the welfare of lumpfish”. The workshop will take place on 5 May at 12-1pm and is free to all attendees.
The workshop will consist of two main topics followed by a discussion panel:
- facilitated hands-on test session of the Lumpfish Welfare Watcher - a web-based and desktop application designed to help fish farmers assess and improve the welfare of Lumpfish
- using AI to improve lumpfish welfare
During the workshop, you will get a free lumpfish welfare chart and learn how to use it in combination with the following lumpfish welfare tools: the lumpfish BMI calculator for the detection of underweight fish and the Rapid Welfare Assessment Tool to calculate the overall welfare of lumpfish.
On 4 May, the Swansea University team will present at the SAIC stand (302) at 3-3.30pm, showcasing their cleaner fish research and how they are training the next generation of aquaculture professionals.
“We encourage everyone interested in fish welfare – farmers, researchers, students, vets, and welfare interest groups to attend this exciting workshop”, said Dr Sara Barrento, Swansea University, speaker and organiser of the workshop.
This is the second joint event in a series organised and supported by the projects: Access2Sea and SIF. The first event took place during the Lochaber Ideas Week – Aquaculture Day in Fort William on the 17 November 2021.Check out the Aquaculture UK programme
