ARRAINA is developing sustainable alternative aquaculture feeds tailored to the nutritional requirements of European farmed fish species, over their respective full life cycles, with reduced levels of fish meal and fish oil. It is also assessing the long term physiological consequences of these changes in diet by applying targeted predictive tools applicable to multiple species of European farmed fish. ARRAINA aims to improve the use of sustainable vegetable products in the formulation of cost-efficient, environmentally friendly fish feeds that ensure production of seafood of high nutritional value and quality.
The ARRAINA project is funded by the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7/2007-2013) under the grant agreement n° 288925. The Nutrition, Metabolism and Aquaculture Research Unit at INRA St-Pée-sur-Nivelle coordinates the project. AquaTT is the project communication and dissemination partner.
