Function-based approaches to welfare relate mostly to the health of animals, typically the focus of the veterinary community. Arguably, the first focus of aquaculture should be raising healthy fish. This presents a number of challenges with respect to determining and implementing appropriate conditions. For example, there are currently few drugs registered for use in the aquaculture setting. While it is unethical, not to say illegal, to permit food to enter the market place unless drugs used to treat the fish have been found to be safe, and the withdrawal times have been adhered to, animal welfare considerations require treatment of diseased fish in a captive aquaculture situation, whether or not those fish might experience similar disease states in the wild.

Governance of Aquaculture In developing the CCAC guidelines on: the care and use of fish in research, teaching and testing (2005), we encountered a genuine concern from scientists that if fish were publicly regarded as animals capable of perceiving pain, a prohibition on fish use in angling, research and aquaculture might follow.
