Animals from the wild and free

§ 11 (1) fishing places appropriate transport containers and means of transport available to must be for the species, if animals to the examination or treatment must be spent.

(2) special attention is settling, quarantine, housing, to give attitude and care of in wild and free trapped animals for which appropriate measures are to meet. If necessary, precautions for their release after completion of animal experiments.

Placing, shaping and keeping areas


§ 12 (1) with the exception of the animals living naturally single animals in stable groups of compatible animals need to be housed. In cases where a single accommodation is 2012 justified according to § 25 para 2 of the animal law, the duration of the accommodation must be limited to the minimum necessary and it must maintain visual, hearing, fragrance and/or tactile contact. The recording or recovery of animals in existing groups must be carefully monitored to prevent problems with incompatibility and disrupted social relationships.

(2) all animals have to have a large range of species-typical behaviors to live in rooms with sufficient complexity. You must control their environment to a certain extent even and select, to relieve stress-related behaviors. All facilities manipulative and cognitive behavior depending on the species must have adequate design possibilities to expand the related animals available range of activities and their adaptation abilities, including movement, foraging. The design of the living environment in areas of animal must be adapted to the species and the individual needs of the animals. The design strategies in the facilities must be regularly reviewed and updated.

(3) animal-keeping areas may have no harmful materials. You must be also so designed and constructed that no violation of the animals is caused. Except in the case of disposable material, they must be of materials that can be easily cleaned and disinfected. The floors in animal husbandry areas must be adapted to the species and the age of the animals and their characteristics must facilitate the removal of excreta.

Feeding

Section 13 (1) nature, content and presentation of the feed must comply with the nutrition and behavior needs of animals.

(2) animal feed must be palatable and may be not contaminated. When selecting the raw materials, in the production, preparation and dosage of the Chuck, measures must be taken to reduce to a minimum the chemical, physical and microbiological contamination are in the facilities.

(3) during packing, transportation and storage, contamination, deterioration and spoilage must be avoided. All food container, troughs or other facilities needed for the feeding must be regularly cleaned and, if necessary, sterilized.

(4) all animals must have access to food and enough space to restrict competition.

Impregnation

All animals must have constantly § 14 (1) clean drinking water.

(2) automatic potion devices be used, regularly to control, maintain, and flushed to avoid accidents. Be used with solid bottom cages, so care must be taken, that the danger of a flood is kept as low as possible.

(3) it must be ensured that the water supply for aquariums and terrariums is adapted to the needs and tolerance limits of individual fish, amphibian and reptile species.

Resting and sleeping areas

Section 15 (1) the animals must always have bedding corresponding to the species of animal or sleeping places, including nest material or nest structures have for pregnant animals. If it requires the species, are to provide appropriate bedding and sleeping places.

(2) in areas of animal husbandry, all animals must be provided a solid and comfortable rest area suitable for the species. All sleeping areas must be kept clean and dry.

Handling

§ 16. Habituation - and training programs to create, which are suitable for the animals and, where appropriate, animal experimentation and the duration of the projects are for institutions.

Species-specific requirements for facilities, care and accommodation of animals

§ 17. The species-specific requirements for facilities, as well as care and accommodation in Appendix 1 are set for the animals referred to in annex 1 to this regulation.

Special requirements for the welfare of fish

Section 18 (1) is at all times to ensure the adequate supply of water of sufficient quality. The flow of water in recirculation and filtration in aquariums must be sufficient to ensure compliance with the water quality parameters at an acceptable level. The water for the facilities is to filter or treat if necessary to remove substances that are harmful to fish. The water quality parameters must always remain within the acceptable range, which supports the normal movement and physiology of a particular type and a particular stage of development. The water flow must allow the fish to swim their way and to maintain normal behaviors. The fishing is to give sufficient time for the adaptation and adaptation to changes of water quality.

(2) the oxygen concentration must be commensurate with the type of fish and the purpose for which they are considered. If necessary, is to provide an additional aeration of the water in the basin. The concentration of nitrogen compounds can be kept low.

(3) the pH-value is to adjust the species and stable as possible to keep. The salinity is to adapt the requirements of the species and life stage of fish. Changes of salinity should be made only step by step.

(4) the temperature must be kept within the range optimum of the concerned species and stable as possible. Temperature changes may take place only gradually. Fish should be kept with an appropriate photoperiod. Noise levels are to be limited to a minimum and are devices which cause noise or vibration, such as power generators and filters, to keep separate as possible from the fish plants.

(5) the stocking density is the total needs of fishes in relation to environmental conditions, establishing health and well-being. Fish must have a sufficient for their decent swimming behavior quantity of water available, taking into account their size, their age, health and feeding method. The fishing is to offer an environment with appropriate design such as hiding and substrate, except that such a design is not required by the pattern of behavior.

(6) the fish are to feed with a food in sufficient quantity and frequency suitable for them. Special attention should be devoted to feed fish in the larval stage when feeding is used by natural food to art food. The handling of fish is to reduce to a minimum.
