The INTERREG Italy-Croatia project “AdriAquaNet” (

coordinated by the Client, aims at enhancing the sustainability of off-shore net pen aquaculture in the Adriatic. Innovative solutions concerning feed and husbandry practices optimizations, as well as reuse of by-products are being tested.

BLueFarm will:

  1. provide a user friendly web-based model for predicting seabass and seabream individual growth, based on water temperature, feed composition and feeding regime;
  2. evaluate the effects of innovative feeds and best husbandry practices tested in AdriAquaNet on the reduction of the local environmental impact of fish farms.
