ARRAINA Workshop on Current Challenges and Perspectives of Carp Feeding


The ARRAINA Workshop on the Current Challenges and Perspectives of Carp Feeding will be held on the 26th March 2015, hosted by the National Agricultural Research and Innovation Centre, Research Institute for Fisheries and Aquaculture (NARIC HAKI) in Szarvas, Hungary.

The ARRAINA (Advanced Research Initiatives for Nutrition & Aquaculture) project aims to define quantitative nutritional requirements for the five main European aquaculture species (Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, common carp, gilthead sea bream, and European sea bass). ARRAINA is also investigating the long-term effects of alternative feeds on fish metabolism, performance, quality and waste management throughout the whole fish lifecycle (egg to brood stock).

The main target audience of the workshop is fish farmers of Hungary and the neighbouring countries, but the participation of other stakeholders (researchers, policy-makers, etc.) is also welcome. For young scientists and farmers mobility grants will be available.

The workshop will be held at the National Agricultural Research and Innovation Center, Institute for Fisheries and Aquaculture, Anna-liget 8, Szarvas, Hungary. Participation to the workshop is free. The language of the workshop is Hungarian and English, interpretation will be provided.

The workshop will consist of plenary sessions to present the project’s outputs and overviews on the current issues and challenges in carp feeding. There will be sessions on broodstock nutrition, egg enrichment, larvae feeding and grow out of common carp, followed by discussions to provide a representative view of the research needs of the sector.

Detailed program, as well as technical and logistical details will follow at a later date. Please click here for the provisional agenda.
