Animal welfare represents an important part of this month newsletter. The adoption in plenary sitting by the European parliament of the non-legislative resolution on the protection of animals during transport within and outside the EU and the debate organised between MEPs and representatives of the European Commission on animal welfare in the aquaculture sector are two important topics for the UEVP. We will keep calling for more and more respect for animal welfare during the upcoming campaign for the European elections and all along the next term.
