Key project: ASTRAL

All Atlantic Ocean Sustainable, Profitable and Resilient Aquaculture (ASTRAL) is a Horizon 2020 collaborative project that focuses on integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) farming and defines, supports and promotes this type of sustainable aquaculture production in the Atlantic area. The project spans three continents in order to ensure a reliable solution applicable in all Atlantic regions. It will bring together labs in Ireland and Scotland (open offshore labs), South Africa (flow-through inshore) and Brazil (recirculation inshore) as well as Argentina (prospective IMTA lab).

The Aquaculture Helix is an international Open Innovation community of specialists in aquaculture and related disciplines. The Helix was launched as a focus for impact and dissemination services in support of the ASTRAL project's ambition to foster a collaborative ecosystem along the Atlantic. In achieving this ambition, ASTRAL will contribute towards efforts to increase circularity in the aquaculture sector, to boost revenue diversification for aquaculture producers, as well as to generate knowledge, technology and best practices.

The ASTRAL project is delighted to invite you to participate in our in-person Winter School titled “Technologies and Circularity for a Sustainable Aquaculture”. This event is led by ASTRAL consortium partner Leitat Technological Center, and will be hosted at the DFactory, Barcelona. The ASTRAL Winter School will explore innovative technologies and circular economy approaches to address the challenges to improve the environmental footprint of aquaculture industry. Academic experts, industry leaders and future orientated policymakers will explore the global challenges faced by the EU aquaculture sector together so that they can collaboratively develop their skills and deliver competitive advantages to the sector. If you are a student, researcher, technology developer, industry expert or deeply passionate about sustainability in aquaculture, this is the event for you.
