IMPAQ aims at increasing the sustainability of the Danish marine aquaculture farms producing high value fish through the development of large-scale cultures of copepods as start feed for larval fish. Copepods represent an important alternative food to present classical live feed organisms in marine fish hatcheries. Their use is known to improve survival, growth, and development of fish larvae.

The specific aims of DTU Aqua contributions to the project are
(i) to describe copepod behaviors that are mediated through water-borne chemical cues (pheromones, grazing attractants);
(ii) to chemically characterize these chemical cues and develop bioassays that can facilitate the identification of water fractions containing active substances; and
(iii) to test the quality of developed live feeds in pilot-scale fish larval cultures.

IMPAQ is built on knowledge transfer and direct collaboration between fundamental and applied scientists and private enterprises (SMEs and industries) and will devote substantial effort into PhD and Postdoc training.

External partners of the project are Roskilde University (coordinator), University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, universities in France and Taiwan and four Danish private enterprises.
