|Aquamax is an initiative funded by the European Commission within the Sixth Framework Programme.
The strategic goal of Aquamax is to replace as much as possible of the fish meal and fish oil currently used in fish feeds with sustainable, alternative feed resources that are as free of undesirable contaminants as possible, consistent with maximising the growth performance, feed conversion efficiency, health and welfare of the farmed fish, and maximising the health - promoting properties, safety, quality and acceptability of the final product to the consumer.
