Fish nutrition and feeding


The aim of the work is to establish diets with an improved texture in terms of their softness, the composition of protein, fat and carbohydrates as well as in the selection and incorporation of levels of nutrients and additives. The levels of these nutrients will be decided, first, according to the nutritional requirements of the species and will be finalized during the course of the project. Different ingredients with water retention or softness characteristics will be explored.
