"Tools for precision feeding in aquaculture"

Precision feeding is an important aspect of the present and future of aquaculture. Feeding has a strong impact on the economic and environmental sustainability of fish farming. SPAROS develops nutritional solutions for precision feeding, which will be discussed in this presentation. These solutions include tailored microfeeds for different fish and shrimp species, testing of feed ingredients and additives to make aquafeeds more sustainable, smart IT tools and services to optimize feeding.
