The workshop was hosted and facilitated by members of the Animal Research Nexus team, and held online on the 24th of June 2021.

Participants included three biomedical research scientists, one conservation biologist, one animal welfare physiologist, one animal technologist, two aquarium facility managers and one representative of an animal welfare organisation. Together we reflected on shared experiences of public engagement focused on the use of fish in animal research, including current practice, barriers to advancing engagement, opportunities and future directions, including the community use of our own Public Engagement initiative, Psychic Fish. 

This report is a summary of those reflections.
