First IDREEM Conference Confirms Large Interest in IMTA

The IDREEM special session was held during Aquaculture Europe in San Sebastian, Spain on 15 October 2014.¬† It included 8 speakers from the IDREEM consortium who provided an insightful and detailed overview of all the activities being carried out by the consortium as well as the preliminary results achieved to date. A full house was…

Implementing IMTA in different habitats

The IDREEM project is being carried out in six different countries, all with different environmental conditions and pre-existing commercial aquaculture set-ups; therefore finding the best way to implement various IMTA schemes for specific¬†habitats is an important research component of the project. Experimental protocols were developed to allow for the standardised testing of each IMTA site…

Social criteria and public acceptance of IMTA

Broadscale public perceptions of IMTA are important to drive the industry forward and support policy and legislative reform. Critically IMTA must be socially acceptable, particularly in light of emerging markets for non-traditional products, food safety and for the environmental image of the aquaculture industry that is increasingly filling the gap between wild captured seafood and…

The combined economic and environmental benefits of IMTA

The major reason for interest in promoting IMTA production systems is the double potential of improved profitability and environmental performance. In addition to the improved profitability for fish farmers and investors, IMTA can bring other important economic benefits associated with improving environmental performance. In this context researchers from University of Haifa and SAMSare analyzing the…

Modelling growth in European cultured fish species

Models used in aquaculture have become increasingly sophisticated in estimating fish growth based on bioenergetics, thermal growth coefficient and other forms. Understanding the factors affecting growth supports aquaculture producers to increase efficiency and control over the production process. IMTA offers one solution to improving overall efficiency, through the co-cultivation of fed (i.e. fish) and extractive…
