Advancements in Humane Slaughter: Food for Thought Webinar

Over the last five years fish farms have come under increasing pressure from supermarkets, consumers, welfare groups, and industry regulators to improve the welfare of their fish and crustaceans during the slaughter processes and also make their operations more ethical and sustainable.

One of the main aspects of welfare is the slaughtering process. Commonly used stunning methods – dry electric stunners, ice bins, or CO2 – are seen as inhumane and outdated. Producers are also questioning the efficacy and quality issues with automated dry electric stunners.

Winner of the Aqua Nor award, Queen’s Award for Enterprise Innovation and the Global Aquaculture Alliance Award for Innovation, Ace Aquatec’s in-water stunner is now used by farms all over the world due to its high welfare and sustainability standards. The in-water electric stunner uses electricity to render any fish species unconscious, within less than one second, without removing them from the water. By stunning the fish in-water, the fish remain unaware, and unstressed until death. This process requires no handling of the fish, ensuring the highest possible welfare standards.

2021 will see the launch of its new pump and automated water-jet bleeder systems to create a 100 per cent ethical and sustainable pump, stun and bleed solution. Join us for our free webinar on May 11th at 12pm EST to learn more!
