Welcome to ARRAINA
Traditionally fish feeds are based on fishmeal and fish oil derived from capture fisheries but there is increasing pressure on this raw material due to increasing demands from a variety of users including the growing aquaculture sector and the human health market (e.g. Fish oil food supplements). Hence the sustainability and competiveness of aquaculture may depend on the replacement of these with alternative ingredients such as plant-based feeds. ARRAINA will build on this need by measuring the long-term effects these changes in diet will have on the full life cycle of fish for which presently little is known.
By developing applied tools and solutions of technological interest in collaborations with SMEs, ARRAINA will further strengthen the links between the scientific community and the EU feed industry and will contribute to increase the productivity and performance of the aquaculture sector leading to competitive advantage to the whole sector at a global level.
ARRAINA Course: Long Term Effects Of Low Fishmeal And Fish Oil Diets Across Life Stages
ARRAINA will hold an informative course on the long term effects of diets low in fish meal and fish oil on the lifecycle of key species, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, on January 13th to 15th, 2016.
This course will focus on the most recent advances on the effects of long term feeding with low fish meal and fish oil diets over the life cycle of key aquaculture species of commercial importance. The course will review the existing knowledge in this area and will include the most recent advances produced by the ARRAINA project. The participants will also benefit from the modern aquaculture facilities of ULPGC to undertake practical lessons.
