The largest European Commission research project is being developed to enhance the European aquaculture production by removing production bottlenecks of emerging species, producing new products and accessing new markets.

It is Diversify project, which is funded under the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission and had its kickoff meeting at the Hellenic Center for Marine Research in Greece in January 2014.

Coordinated by Dr. Constantinos C Mylonas of the Institute of Marine Biology, Biotechnology and Aquaculture, a total of 38 partners from Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Israel, Belgium, The Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, the United Kingdom, Germany and Hungary have participated in this 5-year-long research.

The Netherlands is represented by Wageningen University’s DLO, The National Institute for Fisheries Studies and the Technical University of Eindhoven.

Diversify has identified a number of emerging finfish species, with a great potential for expanding the EU aquaculture industry. The fish species to be studied include meagre (Argyrosomus regius), greater amberjack (Seriola dumerili), wreckfish (Polyprion americanus), Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus), grey mullet (Mugil cephalus) and pikeperch (Sander lucioperca).

These species -- selected based both on their biological and economical potential -- can be marketed at a large size and processed into a range of products to provide the consumer with both a greater diversity of fish species and new value-added products. 

The project Diversify has identified a number of new/emerging finfish species, with a great potential for the expansion of the EU aquaculture industry. 

In the framework of the project, research will be carried out in the scientific disciplines of Reproduction and Genetics, Nutrition, Larval and Grow out husbandry, Fish health, Final product quality and Socioeconomics.

The socio-economic research in Diversify includes an applied market development approach, on perception of aquaculture products, market demand, buyer preferences, new product development, value adding and developing test markets.

The universities in the Netherlands will be responsible for these activities, of which the outcomes will help the EU aquaculture sector and the supply industry in targeted marketing and improvement of its international competitive position.

At present, the Eindhoven University of Technology is looking for international buyers in retail and foodservice industries to interview concerning buying preferences and other possible opportunities.

Research will be carried out in the scientific disciplines of Reproduction and Genetics, Nutrition, Larval husbandry, Grow out husbandry, Fish health and Socioeconomics.
