(Future growth in sustainable, resilient and climate friendly organic and conventional European aquaculture)
The overall objective of FutureEUAqua is to effectively promote sustainable growth of resilient to climate changes, environmentally friendly organic and conventional aquaculture of major fish species and low trophic level organisms in Europe, to meet future challenges with respect to the growing consumer demand for high quality, nutritious and responsibly produced food.
FutureEUAqua follows the whole value chain from egg to fork including
genetic selection of certain species (primary focus is on salmon, seabass, seabream and rainbow trout),
the development of innovative ingredients and feeds,
the application of non-invasive monitoring technologies to look at the impact of housing environments and innovative diets on fish health and welfare,
the development of innovative fish products and packaging methods,
the development of optimal production systems.
The project operates a Stakeholder Platform in order to create a common platform for the experts of the area to discuss the latest developments of sustainable aquaculture.
