Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA), circularity & cross-Atlantic collaboration
Key project: ASTRAL
All Atlantic Ocean Sustainable, Profitable and Resilient Aquaculture (ASTRAL) is a Horizon 2020 collaborative project that focuses on integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) farming and defines, supports and promotes this type of sustainable aquaculture production in the Atlantic area. The project spans three continents in order to ensure a reliable solution applicable in all Atlantic regions. It will bring together labs in Ireland and Scotland (open offshore labs), South Africa (flow-through inshore) and Brazil (recirculation inshore) as well as Argentina (prospective IMTA lab).
The Aquaculture Helix is an international Open Innovation community of specialists in aquaculture and related disciplines. The Helix was launched as a focus for impact and dissemination services in support of the ASTRAL project's ambition to foster a collaborative ecosystem along the Atlantic. In achieving this ambition, ASTRAL will contribute towards efforts to increase circularity in the aquaculture sector, to boost revenue diversification for aquaculture producers, as well as to generate knowledge, technology and best practices.
The ASTRAL project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 863034 🇪🇺
