So, what have we learned from The Welfare of Fish book? To understand and evaluate the welfare of fishes is certainly a challenge. However, given the available information, we have in many cases been able to draw quite firm conclusions. Although some of them can certainly be modified and perhaps even refuted by some researchers, we will here skip phrases and words such as “this suggests”, “it cannot be excluded”, “mostly”, “presumably”, and the like. This is the editors’ current understanding of the cognitive capacity, consciousness, and welfare of fishes after we have read the book chapters . We also suggest three important areas for research.
