Organized By GAIN project with support from H2020 projects PerformFISH, AquaIMPACT, MEDAID, AQUAVITAE, NewTechAqua; and project SUSHIN (Italy)
Purpose: The purpose of this Workshop is present and discuss novel developments of knowledge on novel fish feeds that support eco-intensification of the European aquaculture industry, providing training to professionals on this topic, including aspects of value creation and sustainable use of by-products and side streams from aquaculture, fisheries and agro-industries.
Target groups: Professionals in the aquafeed value chain (e.g., Junior and Senior staff involved in R&D, formulation and technical support), and research institutions (e.g., Lecturers, Researchers, PhD students, post-docs) across the enlarged European Union and other countries.
