Advanced Research Initiatives for Nutrition & Aquaculture


The overall objectives of this project are to:

develop sustainable alternative aquaculture feeds tailored to the nutritional requirements of European farmed fish species, over their respective full life cycles, with reduced levels of fish meal (FM) and fish oil (FO) and
assess the long term physiological consequences by applying targeted predictive tools applicable to multiple species of European farmed fish. It will therefore provide flexibility in the use of various ingredients in the formulation of feeds which are cost-efficient, environmentally friendly and that ensure production of seafood of high nutritional value and quality.
