Improved non-fishmeal nutrients in aquafeeds
The EU-funded MEAL fish project will investigate chaperone-mediated autophagy (CMA) and endosomal microautophagy (eMI) in farmed fish to determine their role in nutrient utilisation and metabolism. Elucidating the role of CMA and eMI in the control of carbohydrate metabolism will help explain the diverse physiological processes that can ultimately affect fish production, including nutrition and growth. The research fellow will study their application in aquaculture for the promotion of the use of non-fishmeal nutrients in aquafeeds, focusing on an important commercial species, the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). This project will ultimately contribute to EU food security and sustainable aquaculture; moreover, it will help the EU maintain its position as a world leader in the field of fish nutrition.
