A study published in the journal “Aquaculture” by CIIMAR researchers revealed that the by-products of the processing of the red alga Gracilaria sp. can be applied as supplements in the diets of sea bream, positively influencing the intestinal microbiota and skin color of these fish, without compromising their growth. This work also evaluated the effect […]

The CIIMAR study “The Use of Defatted Tenebrio molitor Larvae Meal as a Main Protein Source Is Supported in European Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) by Data on Growth Performance, Lipid Metabolism, and Flesh Quality” published in Frontiers in Physiology demonstrate that fish meal replacement by defatted Tenebrio molitor larvae meal is largely feasible in European sea bass without detrimental […]
Researchers from CIIMAR and ICBAS from University of Porto published an article improving knowledge about dynamics in microbiome in water in RAS aquaculture commercial farm of sole (Solea Senegalensis). This production unit, as detailed in the study, consists of four systems: a weaning unit, a pre-fattening unit, a reproduction area and an open system for larval culture. […]

We emphasize that the session on February 18th will be presented in Portuguese, with the contribution of Dr. Begoña Espiña, Leader of the Water Quality Research Group at the Iberian International Nanotechnology […]
CIIMAR Researchers found that dietary glycerol inclusion decreases growth performance and nitrogen retention efficiency in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). The study now published in Aquaculture , shows that despite increasing feed intake, dietary glycerol inclusion levels have negative effects on growth performance, rising the nitrogen excretion. In addition, dietary refined glycerol does not spare the use of proteins […]
The Collaborative Laboratory for Blue Bioeconomics (CoLAB B2E), headquartered at UPTEC Mar, in Matosinhos, Portugal, is a new non-profit association that aims to promote the blue bioeconomy, stimulate the creation of qualified jobs that generate economic and social value in Portugal in the biotechnology and aquaculture sectors, and contribute to new uses and enhancement of […]
