The study of the swimming of fish is essential for our understanding of the interplay between migration, growth and reproduction in wild fish but has considerable interest for fish in aquaculture as well.
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.

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.
