Swimming of fish and implications for migration and aquaculture

Swimming of fish and implications for migration and aquaculture

Background and Objective

FITFISH will provide the ground for technological breakthroughs (e.g. more accurate monitoring of migrant fish; design of exercise-friendly fish farming facilities), for establishing swimming as an essential factor determining welfare and for demonstrating that swimming can benefit quality production.

Target Group

aquaculture industry; fish food industry; technolog companies; international, national and regional governmental bodies; environmental agencies; scientists


FITFISH will add value to independent, nationally funded research activities by providing the means to exchange information and promote industrial activities. Activities in FITFISH also include the training and exchange of early stage researchers in the area.
