Research & Network


Naturland is a partner in the “Future growth in sustainable, resilient and climate friendly organic and conventional European aquaculture” (FutureEUAqua) project. Its overall objective is to effectively promote the sustainable growth of climate-change resilient, environmentally-friendly organic and conventional aquaculture of major fish species and low trophic level organisms in Europe in order to meet future challenges with respect to the growing consumer demand for high quality, nutritious and responsibly produced food.

The 32 different SMEs, Associations, Research Institutes (RTD) and Other companies from the project will promote innovations in the whole value chain, including:

  • Sustainable breeding: Assessing, validating and demonstrating the capabilities of current breeding programs, breeding goals and methodologies.
  • Ingredients and feeds: Ensuring sustainable and resilient production by focusing on high fish performance, health and product quality.
  • Production systems: Documenting tailor-made, cost-effective, optimised production systems
  • Quality and safety: Developing innovative high quality minimally processed fish products and related packaging conditions, in order to valorise aquaculture raw materials.
  • Monitoring competitiveness: Monitoring the impact of housing environments and innovative diets on the fish health and welfare.
  • Consumer awareness: Improving consumer awareness, perception and acceptance of European aquaculture products and methods.
