DTU Aqua also leads the related Innovation Fund Denmark project MuMiPro and two additional MuMiPro partners are involved in BONUS OPTIMUS.  

The overall objective of MuMiPro is to create a new way of growing mussels with a dual purpose: To create a new business area in Denmark by producing animal protein feed ingredients for organic husbandry and improve the marine environment by mitigating eutrophication effects through harvest of mussels. 

MuMiPro has a specific Danish perspective on building a new industry with focus on detailed production and processing methods and business plans aimed at providing feedstuff for organic husbandry of pigs and poultry. BONUS OPTIMUS is focussed on transfer of mussel production know-how and technology to low saline areas and proof of concept for processing feedstuff to aquaculture and will develop generic management tools with focus on social acceptance whereas MuMiPro will develop management tools customised to Danish waters.
