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.
