Valorisation of industrial byproducts into fish feeds

The rationale of this project is based on our previous work with olive pomace (OP) and sea bass and sea bream http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0963996916300916.

The idea is on valorising by-products of olive industry (in Mediterranean countries) but also of wineries/distilleries/breweries in France/Ireland/UK to create novel and sustainable fish feeds by reducing our dependency on fish oil (FO). http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs11101-014-9350-8

These new feeds could then be used in developing new aquaculture fish (e.g.salmon) with strong cardioprotective properties, as derived from EFSA guidelines.
