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.
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.
To develop new forms of supplements from shiitake, based on beta-glucans and lentinan that may eventually eliminate the use of antibiotics and coccidiostats in breeding and fattening fish farms species, evaluating the implementation of this improvement.
The aim of this project is to isolate green compounds with antibiofilm activity, anticancer and cosmeceutic from waste generated by the seafood industry. Chitosan oligosaccharides (cos) will be purified, evaluated and included in formulations to be used in the food, medical and cosmetic industry.
