|Abstract:||This article summarizes the framework that translated data from multiple disciplines into a bio-economic decision tool for modeling the costs and benefits of improving fish welfare in commercial aquaculture. This decision tool formed the basis of a recent EU research project, BENEFISH which was funded via the European Commission's Sixth Framework (FP6) initiative. The bio-economic decision model can incorporate biological data, productivity data, micro (farm) and macro (industry) level economic data, and consumer marketing and business to business data. It can identify areas for potential added value that might be achieved by improving fish welfare across a range of species and husbandry systems within European aquaculture. This article provides a brief overview of the minimum data requirements for successfully modeling the bio-economic impacts of improvements in farmed fish welfare using the model developed during the BENEFISH project. It also highlights potential bottlenecks and the minimum prerequisites for each potential data set to be used for successful modeling.|
