Multiple dates: 24.02 – 14.03.2023 | Times are CET (Berlin)Participation is free. Registration required


The FutureEUAqua project has resulted in exciting innovations in the whole aquaculture value chain. The results of this project will be made available to interested stakeholders through online seminars. This series of online seminars aims to summarize the results and outcomes achieved during the project´s four-year life; you will get the latest research results from the project presented by eminent project researchers.Read more on our project website:


We offer six separate seminars. Each online seminar consists of a 45-minute presentation, followed by 15 minutes question & answer session. To participate, please click on the registration link. Each online seminar will be held on the same Zoom link. Once registered, you will then be provided by a Zoom link with password.

Seminar schedule

Seminar title Seminar date Time
Sustainable breeding (Anne Kettunen, NOFIMA)

This topic will report how the current selective breeding programs for Atlantic salmon, European sea bass, gilthead sea bream, and rainbow trout can respond to future demands for novel feed compositions and climate resilience, and make further improvements in disease resistance.

24.2.2023 14:00 – 15:00
Sustainable and resilient feed and feed strategy (Elena Mente, UTH)

This topic will evaluate finetuned, tailored made per fish species feed formulations on fish performance and product nutritional value for organic and conventional aquaculture. The plan will also assess low eco-footprint aquafeeds for smart optimized aquaculture.

28.2.2023 14:00 – 15:00
Consumer perceptions of the sector (Themis Altintzoglou, NOFIMA)

 This topic will build on consumer perceptions of the sector and identify communication strategies to increase consumer awareness and the social acceptability of aquaculture. A clear plan for a communication campaign that aims to increase consumer awareness and improve consumer perception and acceptance of European aquaculture will be presented.                                         

3.3.2023 12:00 – 13:00
Sustainable and resilient production systems (Wout Abbink , WUR)

This topic will present 1) innovative methods for water quality descriptors, salinity effects on biofilter performance, and feed composition in relation to water quality in RAS. 2) Recent developments in IMTA, demonstrating the
production and environmental feasibility of IMTA at the basin scale. 3) The economic profitability and environmental impact of project innovations, including the effects of the recent spike in energy prices.

7.3.2023 14:00 – 15:00
Internet of Things for healthy fish and environment  (Sebastien Alfonso, COISPA)

This topic will look at the impact of housing environments and innovative diets on fish health and welfare using a wireless communication system to integrate KPIs. This system will track the activity patterns and physiological status of the fish using sensory signals and remote monitoring.                   

10.3.2023 14:00 – 15:00
Quality and safety of aquaculture products (Francesco Capozzi, Morten Sivertsvik, Pietro Rocculi, University of Bologna)

This topic will consider non-thermal processing of fish products to valorise aquaculture raw materials and will identify optimal packaging to preserve quality and safety.                     

14.3.2023 14:00 – 15:00
