SIDESTREAM – Secondary bio-production of low trophic organisms utilizing side streams from the Blue and Green sectors to produce novel feed ingredients for European aquaculture

Abstract To what extent is it possible to process and use nutrients from aquaculture and agriculture waste? Which novel organisms and approaches are best suited? Can these organisms serve as ingredients for feed stuff? How suitable and safe are feed ingredients produced on waste? What is the market potential and economic feasibility of feed ingredients […]

MedSpon – Characterization of new antibiotic principles against WHO priority pathogens of sustainable produced marine sponges for nutraceutical applications

Abstract Marine sponges are receiving increasing public, economic and scientific interest as source of bioactive compounds representing pharmaceutical potential. As sessile organisms sponges have developed chemical defence mechanisms to avoid the covering of algae, bacteria and infectious microorganisms. Regarding the development of new drugs, secondary metabolites are of special interest. Project objectives will address the […]

AquaHeal3D – 3D Printed Biomarine Wound Healing Accelerant

Abstract This project combines all renewable, marine sourced products to create a 3D printed wound healing medical device. We will incorporate Regenics’ bioactive substances from unfertilized salmon roe, HTX, into a topical wound healing dressing (class III medical device) for chronic hard-to-heal wounds. The components of the entire wound-healing device have a marine origin. The […]

AquaTech4Feed – Novel sustainable aquaculture technologies for the production of innovative feeds for improved fish stocks

Abstract The aim of AquaTech4Feed is to formulate novel fish feed from alternative proteinaceous biomass sources, such as algae, duckweed, insects and microbiomes (bioflocs) in order to improve fish production and product quality. AquaTech4Feed will develop a novel sustainable aquaculture production process based on the production of proteinaceous feed utilizing aquaculture wastewater and wastes. The […]

BESTBROOD – Identification of broodstock performance indicators and markers to boost the aquaculture of emerging fish species

Abstract Appropriate broodstock management is essential for supporting reproductive function and reliable and consistent production of gametes and high-quality eggs, critical for the rapid increase in juveniles supply and turn aquaculture into a profitable industry. In all species commercialized to date, this has been the first significant challenge to overcome and it is still so […]

InEVal – Increasing Echinoderm Value Chains

Abstract Sea stars, Sea urchins and Sea cucumbers are abundant marine biomass resources that are under developed. Throughout Europe, these Echinoderms are wastefully exploited, disregarded and discarded. Researchers and industry partners in the InEVal project will advance high quality Bioeconomic products and services from echinoderm biomass. InEVal addresses societal demand for new solutions to current […]

AquaHealth Microalgae Microbiomes – A natural source for the prevention and treatment of diseases in aquaculture

Abstract Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing food sectors in the world. In order to guarantee continuous, efficient and sustainable production and to safeguard the growth of this important sector, its protection from biological threats is crucial. Within the AquaHealth project, an international consortium of highly experienced partners will assemble and apply an advanced […]

BIOZOOSTAIN – Sustainable utilization of zooplankton as by-products

Abstract The main objectives of BIOZOOSTAIN is to fully process valuable ingredients, such as astaxanthin, chitin, polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, wax-esters and enzymes from marine zooplankton, such as Calanus finmarchicus, which are taken ashore and introduced as a side raw material or by-catch during pelagic fishing. The aim is to use these ingredients to develop […]

BIOSHELL – Recycling crustaceans shell wastes for developing biodegradable wastewater cleaning composites

Abstract Wastes from agriculture and fishery cause harmful effects on the environment and implicitly on humans. But, many of these wastes can be recycled. One of the current global issues refers to minimizing waste production, effective wastewater treatment, biosafe food production, and reducing hazards from the exposure to pathogens. Most of the threatening microorganisms especially […]

CASEAWA – Advanced materials using biogenic calcium carbonate from seashell wastes

Abstract The project “Advanced Materials using Biogenic Calcium Carbonate from Seashell Wastes” (CASEAWA) aims at producing chemically and physically functionalized biogenic calcium carbonate particles (FbCCP) using fishery industry waste seashells from mussels and oysters (7 Mton/year). FbCCP will be used in polymeric compounds and to obtain nano-apatites, as representatives of application in the industrial world […]
