The RSPCA Approved Farming Scheme currently covers the production of eggs, chicken, turkey and pork.  Farmed Atlantic salmon is the latest addition to the Scheme with standards launched in April 2016.

More information on the production of farmed Atlantic salmon can be found in our salmon farming facts and in the articles listed below.

In the absence of RSPCA standards for other fish species, consumers are encouraged to contact their favourite seafood companies and ask them about their standards of fish welfare. In addition, consumers are encouraged to source fish from fisheries or aquaculture operations that comply with certification schemes that require sustainable practices.
