The project targeted welfare aspects of individual variability fish. Such differences include both behavioural and physiological traits, which are often clustered in separate stress coping styles. These stress coping styles seem to be coupled to fundamental differences in how information is processed. The aim of this project was to develop methods for separating fish with respect to stress coping styles, and investigate how fish with contrasting stress coping styles differs in cognitive evaluation of challenges. Moreover, the neural mechanism separating fish with contrasting stress coping styles was investigated. The project was part of a large scale collaborative project, funded by the European Commission FP 7 (Cope Well), aiming to establish, evaluate, and further develop, a new scientific framework for the understanding and application of the concept of animal welfare in farmed fish.

The project was coordinated by Havforskningsinstituttet ((IMR), Norway.
