Challenge: With an increasing population, food systems need to substantially increase the production of safe and nutritious food, while reducing the pressure on environmental resources.
Solution: NewTechAqua will expand and diversify European aquaculture production of finfish, molluscs and microalgae by developing and validating technologically advanced, resilient and sustainable applications. With this new set of solutions, NewTechAqua will demonstrate that investment in sustainable aquaculture research and innovation leads to the creation of new value chains, markets, growth and jobs in coastal, offshore and landlocked areas.
Duration: January 2020 – December 2023
