TA 4. Sustainable Feed Production
Chair: Ole Christensen – Biomar (Denmark)
Facilitator: Maria Alexi – HCMR (Greece)
Contact – TASustainableFeeds@eatip.eu
"Sustainable fish feeds, [whose manufacture will be] based on solid scientific knowledge and reliable raw materials, will contribute to making aquaculture one of the most efficient producers of high value food for humans, and one that respects environment and fish welfare."
Identified KEY GOALS:
- Base formulation of Future Fish Feeds on solid knowledge of fish nutritional and feeding requirements, and expand the number of well characterised and sustainable raw materials which can be used.
- Advanced novel feed technologies to produce cost effective feed with improved quality.
- Understand and minimise non desired effects of alternative diets on fish health and welfare.
- Adapt and utilise advanced methods to understand and model nutritional responses.
- Resolve strategic research problems in fish nutrition.
