The aim is to develop a new deepwater mooring system based on synthetic ropes that is suitable for the mooring of third generation, semi-submersible platforms within depth ranges of 500 to 2,500 metres.
This umbrella aims at the creation of a european-wide platform to combine r & d capabilities and expertise in order to generate projects in the area of fish breeding.
Evaluate the produced ornamental fish in the industry and develop new genetic lines of symphysodon sp. (Discus). Spain will carry out evaluations and czech republic will test their discus lines on a large scale.
To develop a rearing technology for blackspot seabream transferable to the industrial sector. Optimisation of the preliminary results will enable the development of a new species for european aquaculture.
To develop a new flexible automated line fishing system suitable for small boats. The technology should be based on an automated 'snap-on / snap-off' solution for hooks and monofilament main lines.
The main objective of the speargun project is to develop a new speargun for underwater hunters, with git-gas injection technology and composite materials. The result will be an innovative speargun.
Zf-implants(r), which is based on patented platform technology, will be developed as a tool to enhance eel reproduction. The implants incur low stress and result in natural hormone levels. The dutch-danish consortium aims to obtain an optimal protocol for production of viable eggs and larvae.
To develop a new vegetal food for aquaculture based on flax as a source of omega 3. The result of this project would also be a new quality label for enhanced fish nutritional content (especially n-3 fatty acid well known as 'omega 3') and sustainable aquaculture.
To develop new protein concentrates (lupins, beans, peas and rapeseeds, all from eu crops) for use in aquafeeds. These protein sources will be obtained by novel physical methods (micronisation and air classification) and their efficacy validated in trout and gilthead sea bream.
Informed addresses online monitoring & control of production in the meat processing industry. The aim is to develop three novel sensor systems to measure : tenderness, water holding capacity, foreign body detection, water activity and bacterial contamination.
