FINEFISH - Improving sustainability of European aquaculture by control of malformations
The project aimed to generate new practical knowledge on how to reduce the incidence of malformations in the major fish species used in European aquaculture production and to apply this to the professional sector. The project started in 2005 and ended in 2008.
A hard copy of the manual, high definition version is available at the FEAP Secretariat. It can also be downloaded via the enclosed pdf documents
