Final Report - ALFA (Development of an automated innovative system for continuous live feed production in aquaculture hatchery units)

Project ID: 512789
Funded under: FP6-SME


Live food production in intensive fish hatcheries is comprised by repetitive tasks that could be performed using specialised automatic equipment. The ALFA project was funded by the European Commission and aimed to develop two innovative, fully automated systems for the continuous production of live feed, i.e. microalgae, in aquaculture hatcheries.

This final activity report provides an overview of the project objectives, presents the developed instruments and summarises ALFA achievements. The structure of the project in work packages is highlighted and the progress that was attained by the different research teams is analysed. Moreover, the document refers to the implementation, assessment and comparison of the proposed solutions. Finally, it closes with an overview of product patenting and knowledge dissemination activities.
