ParaFishControl Salmon

ParaFishControl aims to develop reliable, cost-efficient tools and solutions for preventing and mitigating parasitic diseases of European farmed fish

TITLE: Advanced Tools and Research Strategies for Parasite Control in European farmed fish
PROGRAMME: Horizon 2020
INSTRUMENT: Research and Innovation Action
TOTAL BUDGET: €8.1 million
EC CONTRIBUTION: €7.8 million
DURATION: April 2015 - March 2020 (60 months)
COORDINATOR: Agencia Estatal Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC)
CONSORTIUM: 29 partners in 13 European countries

Disease prevention and management are essential for the sustainability of the European aquaculture industry. The diversity of species and farming practices throughout Europe involves a significant number of threats related to a large variety of pathogens that hamper production and require specific preventive and curative practices and tools ensuring a high level of biosecurity of aquaculture production and related seafood products. Among other disease-related threats, parasites and related infections can cause significant damages to farmed fish species and can result in poor growth performance, impaired welfare, and high mortality rates, with significant consequences in terms of production and economic performance.

The overarching goal of ParaFishControl is to increase the sustainability and competitiveness of the European Aquaculture industry by improving our understanding of fish-parasite interactions and by developing innovative solutions and tools for the prevention, control and mitigation of the most harmful parasitic species affecting the main European farmed fish species.
