Welcome to ARCTAQUA
Cross-Border Innovations in Arctic Aquaculture
Aquaculture is the fastest growing animal production in the world and is considered an environmentally sustainable protein source for the growing world population. However, in Europe and Russia the aquaculture production volume has not followed the increase demand for aquaculture products. The diversification of the produced aquaculture species has the potential to answer to the markets demand for fish protein. The ARCTAQUA main objective is to promote the development of sustainable aquaculture in the Arctic region. For this, the ARCTAQUA will address main bottlenecks in the production of novel fish species (Arctic char, spotted wolffish, European whitefish and nelma) in the Arctic region which will improve the economical feasibility of these species production and expand this industry. Ultimately, the ARCTAQUA will result in new job opportunities and contribute for the economical development of the Arctic region.
