It is well known that the covariant conservation of energy and momentum, that underlies relativistic fluid dynamics, is a consequence of diffeomorphism invariance in relativistic quantum field theory. I will show that further divergence-type equations of motion can be obtained for the spin current, the dilatation current and the shear current from extended space-time symmetry transformations. These relations could be the missing link for an understanding of causal relativistic fluid dynamics in terms of quantum field theory. If time permits I will also comment on the second law of thermodynamics for relativistic fluids from a quantum information theoretic perspective.
