SMARTAQUA Research Feeds into Horizon Europe Proposal

SMARTAQUA Research Feeds into Horizon Europe Proposal


SMARTAQUA’s research into lumpfish welfare, the resulting SoPs and the Lumpfish Welfare Watcher online tool, is supporting a proposal submitted to the European Commission.

This major European project proposal utilises aspects of SMARTAQUA’s research into Lumpfish welfare and the the project Consortium represents a joint effort by researchers and stakeholders to develop and validate robust measures of fish welfare that can be applied across species and fish uses, namely aquaculture, animal research, and the aquarium trade.

If funded, the project will help meet the EU Green Deal and SDG targets on management and control of fish welfare and provide lasting legacy and impact for SMARTAQUA.



SMARTAQUA: aquaculture beyond food is supported by the Welsh Government and the European Regional Development Fund.
