Technological Advice for Aquaculture Activities


The research group has a great deal of experience with a wide variety of culture species (freshwater and marine fish, shellfish, crustaceans and prey animals, cold water and tropical), as well as various culture systems.


The Aquaculture research group can provide scientific guidance in innovative as well as specialised and commercialised culture in mono and polyculture. In addition we can provide advice about good culture species, culture conditions, water purification, waste treatment, construction and professional aquaculture businesses.
