INTEGRATE fosters cooperation for industrial transition towards Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) in the Atlantic Area

First Portuguese expert round-table coming up in Olhão

IPMA’s Estação Piloto de Piscicultura de Olhão will host the first Portuguese round-table to discuss IMTA technical issues on 12 April 2018.

Work Package 4 envisages four thematic round-tables (technical; environmental; economic and social) per country with the aim of bringing key experts together (from industry, academia, state institutions etc.) to develop the concept of Best-Practice for IMTA in each Atlantic Area country, which will then be synthesised into best practice for the Atlantic Area as a whole.

European project to boost Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture

El Puerto de Sta. María, November 13th, 2017– Eight organisations from Spain, France, Ireland, Portugal and the United Kingdom have partnered up to implement project INTEGRATE (Integrate Aquaculture: an eco-innovative solution to foster sustainability in the Atlantic Area). The project was approved in the first call for proposals of the INTERREG Atlantic Area 2014-2020 Programme.

INTEGRATE seeks to improve the environmental performance of Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA). To this end, it focuses on making best use of the nutrient flow in aquaculture facilities by farming together species belonging to different trophic levels. The IMTA approach maximises resource efficiency while providing natural bioremediation at aquaculture farming sites.
