Project description

The aim of this COST Action is to contribute to the scientific knowledge basis as to support a sustainable development of aquaculture. This requires identifying critical success factors and gaps in knowledge in order to overcome the present limiting predictable mass supply of quality juveniles. The multidisciplinary network of researchers and producers intends to achieve this through integration of knowledge obtained in national and European research projects and practical experience.
