The central objective of LANUCE is the generation of excellent science and innovation, through basic and applied research.
Our research tasks are focused in a double approach: the optimization of sustainable culture practices for new aquaculture species will evaluate its suitability for massive farming, whereas studies on quality, safety and welfare of seafood, including functional feeds, will provide a solid response to increasing interest of consumers.
LANUCE will contribute to the use of emerging technologies for re-use and valorization of industrial by-products that together with the recent opportunity to include animal protein sources in aqua feeds are the most interesting challenges facing the feed industry sector.READ MORE
