The paper ‘Invertebrate sentience and sustainable seafood’ by Andrew Crump (LSE Philosophy), Heather Browning (LSE Philosophy), Alexandra K. Schnell (University of Cambridge), Charlotte Burn (Royal Veterinary College) and Jonathan Birch (LSE Philosophy) has now been published in nature food.

Octopuses, crabs and lobsters are probably sentient, yet their welfare needs are poorly protected in the food system. Upholding animal welfare in the seafood industry presents challenges, and more research is needed to address humane capture, housing and slaughter.
