The ARA supports higher-welfare practices in aquaculture that are

Farmers are provided access to better markets and are fairly compensated.
Fishes in higher-welfare systems require fewer chemical inputs, like antibiotics.

Aquaculture is the fastest-growing food sector worldwide.
In India, many fishes reared in aquaculture suffer greatly.
Welfare issues include diseases, crowding, improper handling, poor water quality, and the inability to display natural behaviour.
The Alliance for Responsible Aquaculture (ARA) was formed to improve the welfare of fish as much as possible.
Because welfare is right for thriving businesses, healthy societies, sustainable environments, and, most importantly, fishes.
Our work also plays an important role in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
