Open Philanthropy recommended a contract of $1,800,000 over two years with FAI Farms to improve the welfare of carp, tilapia, and shrimp — three of the most numerous vertebrate species — in China, Thailand, and Brazil. FAI Farms intends to use this funding to conduct and share the results of welfare assessments.

This follows our April 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

This project was supported through a contractor agreement. While we typically do not publish pages for contractor agreements, we occasionally opt to do so.
