New Blue Revolution through a pioneering pathogen-trapping technology based on bioselective hydrogel-forming proteins

Project description

Catching pathogens directly from the water

European aquaculture takes a variety of forms, such as intensive farming models that are widely used for rearing finfish. However, intensive models have led to an increase in infection outbreaks, impacting fish health, food production, the environment and the industry’s bottom line. The EU-funded PathoGelTrap project will develop a pathogen-trapping technology that will bring a paradigm shift in infectious-disease management practices. Specifically, it will design a chimeric biomimetic material that will efficiently recognise and trap fish pathogens (both viruses and bacteria) directly in the water and block them. The project will provide the industry with two solutions: PathoGelTrap Liquid (for closed fish farms) to be added directly into the fish-farm water as a flocculant agent and PathoGelTrap Filter (for both closed and open fish farms) to trap the pathogens as they pass through the regular aquaculture filtration systems.
