FIS –

An innovative multidisciplinary project led by the Galway National University of Ireland (NUI Galway) and the Athlone Institute of Technology seeks to improve the efficiency and management of farmed fish production in several continental freshwater areas.

The project received a grant of almost EUR 350,000 from the European Maritime Fisheries Fund (EMFF), administered by Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) through the Knowledge Gateway Scheme, on behalf of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

The ECOAQUA project is expected to provide new information and new methods, and to generate greater awareness, based on the development of new partnerships, research and innovation in the environment and health.

The initiative contemplates a series of activities that help to solve serious needs found by the industry and stakeholders of the aquaculture sector.
