EcoAqua Project Objectives
Increase fish biomass output per unit input (e.g. energy). Increase production efficiency and competitiveness. New production management strategies that minimise environmental impacts (e.g. wastewater treatment; WFD). Develop and demonstrate the use of innovative technologies that improve efficiencies and can accommodate organic classification. Develop benchmarking tools that enable end-users monitor production efficiency and inform key process […]
