Starting date: 01/01/2019 End date: 31/12/2021
Programme: Aquaculture

Principal investigator:

Financing entities:

In the present proposal, IRTA, collaborating with an SME, an association of companies and a technological centre, aims to provide the know-how to sustainably culture flathead grey mullet (Mugil cephalus).

To achieve the bases for sustainable mullet culture, the proposal will provide solutions to the reproductive dysfunction that arrests maturation in the early stages of gametogenesis and examine the use of circular economy dietary ingredients that can be used in place of dietary fish meal and fish oil that limit sustainable expansion of aquaculture.
