The smart-HATCHERY project

The main goal is to innovate and make a change in the current feeding processes in aquaculture hatcheries of marine fish and shrimp species, by demonstrating the benefits of using:

  • smartFEEsh: A centralized smart feeders based in innovative digital technologies 4.0
  • winFEEDs: A new generation of dry microdiets with high nutritional ingredients, low leaching and high water stability and maximal larval performance and welfare.

This project has received funding from the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterpise (EASME) in the EMFF-BlueEconomy programme under grant agreement NÂș 863709
