InnoAquaTech was present at this year’s Aquaculture Europe conference, which took place in Dubrovnik. The project had secured a stand, where business and research representatives could find out more about the project, partners and our 4 pilot RAS projects.
Thank you to all the members, friends and supporters of the SUBMARINER Network who came to Berlin in the end of September and made a success of the 2nd SUBMARINER Conference Better off Blue. Please find the documentation of the conference here.
Farming of blue mussels is a new, exciting solution to an old problem – eutrophication of the Baltic Sea. Mussels filtrate, extract nutrients and improve water quality, which may reduce the frequency of algal blooms. Consequently, mussel farming is being tested as an environmentally responsible tool to reduce Baltic Sea eutrophication. The farmed mussels could potentially be used as a replacement for fish meal or soya meal to feed poultry or farmed fish as well as for bioenergy production. As a response to a new study that suggest that mussels emit substantial quantities of methane, two scientists from the BBG project decided to set the record straight.
The Submariner Network is taking part in a new Interreg Baltic Sea Region project named BalticRIM - Baltic Sea Region Integrated Maritime Cultural Heritage Management!

Call for nominations is open, apply by 22 October 2017!

Whilst most were enjoying their summer holidays, Guldborgsund Zoo was a hive of activity, preparing together with DTI for the reception of 105 catfish (Clarias gariepinus) fingerlings – the inhabitants of the second phase of the Danish InnoAquaTech Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) demonstration and dissemination pilot, which is part of a temporary exhibition and will run for the next three months.
