The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of €853,415 (approximately $990,000 at the time of conversion) over two years to Eurogroup for Animals to continue and expand its fish welfare advocacy. This will allow Eurogroup for Animals to continue and expand its EU-level political advocacy, its support of its member groups’ advocacy in member states, and its support for corporate reforms and increased research funding on fish welfare. We consider building the field of fish welfare advocacy a priority because fish are likely the most numerous vertebrate farmed animals.

This grant was made by a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization, to which we occasionally make funding recommendations, is a renewal of our December 2016 support, and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
