Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $95,000 to New York University to support research scientist Becca Franks’s work on fish welfare. These funds will support research on curiosity in fish, and will enable Professor Franks to help commission articles that promote state-of-the-art fish welfare research as guest editor of Frontiers in Veterinary Science.

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