Aquaculture in Delta Areas (BFftF)
Research group Aquaculture in Delta Areas of the Delta Academy has its focus on sustainable saline aquaculture. Aquaculture is the controlled production of saline crops, algae, seaweed, rag worms, shellfish and fish. Cultivation of these organisms can take place in several (intensive and extensive) ways.
The research group Aquaculture has built up an extensive network of Small and Medium Enterprises (SME), consultancies and knowledge institutes involved in the aquaculture sector. The main focus of the Research group is on Shellfish-, Macro- and Micro algae production.
Since we have close collaboration with SME's the research has a strong practical approach. In this minor researchers and students work together in field and lab studies in order to answer research questions for these SME's.
The research group Aquaculture uses a full-fledged research facility SEA Lab, in which many applied research (experiments) are carried out. Furthermore for field studies we have sophisticated measuring equipment and sensors available.
