Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of €986,000 (approximately $1,167,818 at the time of conversion) over two years to Eurogroup for Animals to support 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. Our farm animal welfare team considers building the field of fish welfare advocacy a priority because fish are likely the most numerous vertebrate farmed animals.

This follows our September 2018 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
