Opdræt af muslingeyngel på liner


Mussel farming has a high potential for contributing to a sustainable blue growth in the Baltic. To fulfill this potential, research and development is needed on several levels. The overall goal of BONUS OPTIMUS is to provide robust evidence-based ecological, social, and economic documentation on optimized use of farmed mussels as a mitigation tool for eutrophication that in turn can be a sustainable protein-rich feedstuff for fish.
