Enhancing knowledge of BIOmolecular solutions for the well-being of European AQUAculture sector CA22160BIOAQUACOST Action



Sustainable Biomolecular Solutions

About BioAqua COST Action

A growing interest in the development of new technologies to foster the sustainability of aquaculture sector has arisen over the past decade, seeking alternative scientific and technical tools for fish-farm production. In order to assess the current status, our action aims at exploring the potential of biomolecular solutions for the well-being of European aquaculture sector, proposing an innovative conceptual pathway for veterinary applications, tracking systems, diagnosis or biosafety. For that purpose, the Action proposes to establish an innovative and dynamic European network connecting scientists, aquaculture industry and stakeholders to optimize information exchange, develop a joint research agenda, explore new advance research lines and enhance the co-production among researchers and other industry and societal actors. Among the different activities and outcomes, the action will promote the visit to different aquaculture facilities and the development of an interactive website for knowledge exchange. Overall, the action will contribute to improve fish welfare and reduce costs related to critical circumstances (blooms, diseases, overuse of antimicrobials…).

BioAqua plans to use innovative approacheshigh potential impactsustainable aquaculturebiomolecular solutions

Multidisciplinary / multi-stakeholder Working Groups (WGs) in charge of coordinating research in line with the Action’s defined aim and focuses:
- WG 1 “Biomolecular solutions for water prophylaxis and biosafety”, with particular focus into new proteins and biomolecular biomarkers.
- WG 2 “Biomolecular solutions as alternative methods and tools for fish-farm production”, with particular focus in environmental-friendly and safe treatments, and new molecular engineering methodologies or disruptive combinations.
- WG 3 “Fish welfare” will be a horizontal WG focused in developing an integral perspective of the potential impact over fish derived from the solutions explored in WGs 1 and 2 (disease, stress, growth, feeding, behaviour, etc.)
- WG 4 “Sustainability insights” will focus on an in-depth analysis of the drivers and barriers in relation to the sustainability of aquaculture and the potential adoption of the solutions explored in WGs 1 and 2. This will include regulation aspects and proposing an innovative conceptual pathway for veterinary applications and fish tracking systems. It will also be a horizontal WG to all previous WGs described.
- WG 5 “Informed creativity”, is a complementary WG that will focus on the context of R&I management, including the technological, sectorial, territorial, policy-oriented, and social dimensions potentially impacting research and uptake of results.
