This project studies the technological transfer of research results in moderate and sustained exercise in sea bream (Sparus aurata) to the culture techniques of the aquaculture sector in order to improve its fry production: better growth rate and quality.
Three XRAq groups analyze the application of sustained swimming conditions on growth, feed conversion rate and physiological adaptation (UB1), management and hydrodynamic facilities (UPC) and the welfare of juveniles (UAB2).
