FishBoost - Boosting European aquaculture by advancing selective breeding to the next level
Main aim: "To improve the efficiency and profitability of European aquaculture by advancing selective breeding to the next level for each of the six main finfish species through collaborative research with industry". A mixture of low and high- tech technological advances will be developed to move the breeding programmes of the 6 main finfish species to the next level. This step-change advance will facilitate balanced and sustainable breeding programmes applying a wide set of traits, breeding tools and technologies.
A dissemination programme will deliver these results to SME’s and other end-users thereby advancing existing and stimulating new aquaculture breeding programmes in Europe.
