Fishing for a healthier aquaculture industry
The European Union is home to some 12 500 aquaculture enterprises, mostly microbusinesses employing less than 10 employees. While EU production has increased by 2.2 % yearly in volume between 2014 and 2016, and 3.1 % in value, aquaculture is stagnating compared to global production rates. The aim of the ALGABOOSTER project is to help make the European aquaculture sector competitive and sustainable. Their advanced aquafeed enriched with a marine microalgae immunostimulant complex will boost fish immune system and growth as well as buffer the effects of stress, all in a natural way. It has been scientifically tested and guarantees significant reduction in mortality rates. ALGABOOSTER has also demonstrated a substantial increase in the final product quality.
