Final Report - ESCAPEPROOFNET (Escapees in European Aquaculture Development of an Escape proof Net Especially for Cod Bass and Bream Fish Farming)

Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

Operating aquaculture equipment was initially developed for salmon farming and is not optimal for cultivation of more aggressive species. This results in population escapes, reduces the farms' profit and is environmentally harmful due to disease transfer and genetic alterations of the wild fish.

The EU-funded ESCAPEPROOFNET project aimed to develop a sea cage net system suitable for typical net aggressive fish species. The project evaluated and optimised alternative materials and fabrication techniques in order to improve net properties and reduce operational costs.

This final activity report provides an overview of ESCAPEPROOFNET objectives and refers to delays within the elaboration period. It also presents the undertaken activities and the attained progress. Finally, the document summarises the commercial exploitation and knowledge dissemination strategy.
