Additionally, a number of ingenious behavioural tests have been developed to allow animals to express their natural preferences and, though relatively little used in fish welfare research, such tests have given us valuable insights into the circumstances that promote/detract from animal welfare (Dawkins 2006). In addition to, and in some cases as a result of, such immediate physiological and behavioural responses, adverse conditions have longer-term consequences (Barton 1997; Wendelaar Bonga 1997; FSBI 2002).

2004) and Braithwaite & Huntingford (2004). These authors came to a different conclusion concerning the possibility for fish to perceive pain. In summary, Chandroo et al. (2004) stated that it is becoming clear that fish have the capacity to detect, conceptualize and subsequently respond to a nociceptive stimulus, and concluded that from a neuroanatomical perspective, it appears that modern hypotheses pertaining to the neural basis of consciousness include rather than exclude fish species. In addition, other animals display key behaviours and responses that have long been associated with consciousness in humans (Van Swinderen 2005).
