The Swedish aquaculture industry is now at an important turning point for its development, but it is facing urgent matters. Technical innovations are needed to make current practices more sustainable, such as the development of novel land-based recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), currently approached at the University of Gothenburg.

In this seminar, our collaborator from the MIRAI consortium, Professor Tomonori Kindaichi, from the University of Hiroshima (Japan) will present his work on marine Anammox bacteria and the potential use of this bacteria to remove nitrogen waste products in our RAS.

The seminar (45 minutes), will be preceded by a short presentation of our collaborative project (10 minutes) an visit of our RAS, a fika and (optional) open discussion.

12:00. Welcome and registration, lunch served
