Abstract

Mikhalevich and Powell (2020) argue that it is both scientifically and morally wrong to dismiss the evidence for sentience in invertebrates, though they refrain from offering any insights into how their welfare may be considered or improved. Here, we draw on animal welfare science to make several suggestions on possible ways forward in this area, in particular to avoid the demandingness objection by showing that these need not require overly demanding actions.
