Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $283,000 over two years to Animal Protection Denmark to support research on ways to improve the welfare of wild-caught fish. This funding is intended to enable Animal Protection Denmark to study the feasibility of developing a more humane slaughter method to minimize the suffering of wild-caught pelagic fish.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
