LIFE AQUASEF aims to demonstrate, promote and disseminate low-carbon technologies and best practices for European Aquaculture. Proposed measures will help reduce site’s energy and oxygen dependence besides the environmental impacts of the activity through the improvement of effluents purification and CO2 fixation by microalgae. Some added values to the last measure will foster the replacement of chemical growth additives, developing alternative feed supplements and reducing GFG total emissions in aquaculture production.
The ultimate goal of the project is to reduce carbon footprint on aquaculture and to improve effluents quality through the implementation of innovative technologies designed to reinforce sustainability at fish and molluscs production life cycle.
The project comprises 7 main activities
