Improving sustainability and performance of aquafeeds (WiseFeed)

Start date: 01 Jan 2016, End date: 31 Dec 2018,

An important gap in continued sustainability of fish farming is the lack of a proper understanding on digestive function and aquafeeds utilization. The WiseFeed project will focus on this gap using an integrative approach and considering selected key fish species in culture, the feed composition and feeding protocols. The approach in WiseFeed is based on a collaborative effort for advancing both t ...
