How is it being fished?

Wild Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) cognitive and emotional experience of being fished

Heyy! Have you ever wondered how was it being fished? That’s the question I tried to answer for my master thesis project.

In fact, 2 years ago I decided to leave my home country (France) to study animal behaviour and especially animal welfare in the master’s degree Applied Ethology and Animal Biology at LIU.

After a year in Sweden, I decided to reach the Norwegian coast to focus on fish, and especially on wild Atlantic cod, at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) with the guidance of my supervisor Marco A. Vindas.
