Species diversification and improvement of aquatic production in seaweeds purifying effluents from integrated fish farms and from other waste sources

Objective

OBJECTIVES AND EXPECTED ACHIEVEMENTS
The principal goals of the SEAPURA project are:
(a) to develop and test the cultivation of high-value seaweed species (marine macroalgae) not used before in poly-aquaculture, and
(b) to improve culture success for established seaweed species in order to reduce the undesirable effects of intensive fish mariculture by integrating seaweed farming with fish farms in poly-aquaculture systems.

The scientific and technological objectives and expected achievements are
1. to increase the diversity of seaweed species available to be used in integrated poly-aquaculture systems (IPAS), in which the growth of seaweeds is combined with fish aquaculture. The alga species to be used include the red algae Asparagopsis, Dilmontia, Gracilaria, Gracilariopsis, Laurencia, Palmaria and Porphyra, and the green algae Codium and Ulva.
