The possible advantages deriving from the use of this innovative system are:

  • reduction of water nitrogen compounds and microbial load
  • improvement of fish health
  • reduction in the use of antibiotics
  • increase in productivity and product quality
  • water saving in recirculation systems
  • remediation of waste water also in terms of antibiotic residues
  • reduction of farm environmental impact
  • increase in sustainability

Besides the proposed innovative technique itself, this project is directed to:

  • awareness creation amongst fishermen on the environmental impact of fish farming in the Mediterranean basin
  • educate fish farmers on how to reduce environmental impact
  • inform aquaculture depuration systems (filters) producers about this technique to collaborate for innovation licensing
  • involve policy makers to spread information about the results of the project and about the availability of this innovative low-cost remediation technique
