They should get enough room to move around properly, at least.
When I heard that they had regulations in Sweden, I made a phone call to the RSPCA to tell them that I'd support regulations being introduced here. They don't cover fish. Then I rang the Fisheries Department, but they didn't cover it and gave me another number, but that number only deals with illegal fishing, not fish welfare issues. There doesn't seem to be any department that deals with fish welfare. So then I rang the Minister for Fisheries' office and said that they need to sort out some department to oversee fish welfare issues.
