FISHBOOST - The next level of aquaculture breeding
Boosting European aquaculture by advancing selective breeding to the next levels
Globally an increasing demand for aquaculture products arises. The aquaculture sector is relatively young and has to increase productivity and profitability while reducing the impact on the environment. A major improvement can be made by improving and expanding breeding programmes.
FISHBOOST aims at improving the efficiency and profitability of European aquaculture by advancing selective breeding to the next level for each of the six main finfish species through collaborative research with industry
Fishboost is a collaborative project funded by the EC under the 7FP for Research & Technical Development.
