Eco-Innovative Aquaculture System Training for European Industrial Doctorates

Project description

Training researchers to address future challenges of fish farms

The farming of finfish, shellfish and aquatic plants is one of the world's fastest growing food sectors. Aquaculture accounts for about 20 % of fish production in Europe. It also supplies more than 50 % of all seafood produced globally. But while demand is growing, capture fisheries are not. The EU-funded EASYTRAIN project will develop innovative aquaculture systems based on the most modern techniques and using organic aquaculture feed formulas. Specifically, it will match expertise of two academics and four industrial partners from Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands and Italy, with complementary expertise in the field of plant and fish farming, feed production, aquaculture engineering and microalgae biotechnology. By the end of the project, six researchers will have the experimental and transferable skills required to address future challenges in the aquaculture sector.
