Sustain Feed

Development of highly sustainable less/zero competing-food aquafeeds for European aquaculture using low carbon and zero waste ingredients

This project aims to develop novel feeds for marine fish to increase the sustainability of European aquaculture

“This Project has received funding from the EIT Food under the Horizon 2020/Horizon Europe programme, grant No [21168]”

The need for sustainable fish feeds covering the whole production cycle, from larvae to marketable size, is a major challenge currently facing the aquaculture sector.

Fishmeal content in aquafeed for the major farmed marine species produced in Europe has progressively declined, being mainly replaced by plant ingredients. Some of these plant ingredients are valid food for human consumption though, so do not provide an ideal sustainable and resource efficient solution.
