Project Details

Description

Within the last 8 years a number of mussel farms have been established. A significant growth and development in the seafood industry can be expected if the industry offers support in relation to research and development. The research is primary focused on testing different farming methods in collaboration between a number of research institutions and aquaculture organizations. Also at the level of individual mussel farms, methods are developed to improve growth by adapting cultivation techniques to local environmental conditions and to improve harvest techniques. These developments which take place in individual farms promote diversification of methods.

The aim of the project is to collect and compile this body of information, in order to disseminate the knowledge to other farmers. The farms will thus have the opportunity to evaluate and use the best possible production methods in relation to the production conditions their production area offers.

The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua.
