Toelichting (Engels) To date the electrical water-bath is still the most-used stunning system for poultry in Europe. However, due to advantages for animal welfare and meat quality, gas stunning systems are becoming more and more popular. Moreover, the use of the electric water bath - due to stricter European animal welfare requirements - has become technically more difficult. For this reason almost all broiler slaughterhouses in The Netherlands have switched to gas stunning systems that use low concentrations of CO2 to render birds unconscious. Ducks and most laying hens though are still stunned by an electric water bath even though for these birds gas stunning is also a more humane option.
