The overall objective of FutureEUAqua is to promote sustainable growth of climate-change resilient, environmentally friendly organic and conventional aquaculture. To this end, FutureEUAqua will promote innovations in the whole value chain, including genetic selection, new ingredients and feeds, non-invasive monitoring technologies, innovative fish products and packaging methods and new production systems (e.g. IMTA and RAS). The project takes into account socioeconomic considerations by the involvement of a wide range of stakeholders. Consumer demand and awareness of how to choose sustainable and climate friendly seafood will also be addressed. The project has planned many communication and dissemination activities as well as training sessions. FutureEUAqua is funded by Horizon 2020.
