Asteasier samples are ready for fish trials in Biomar!
19 December 2023
Today, the Asteasier project consortium partners A4F and SOLE-LAB (University of Verona) are excited to announce a significant milestone reached: samples are ready to be sent for fish trials at Biomar, a renowned leader company in aquaculture and partner in the Asteasier project.
Over the past months, selected microalgae strains producing ketocarotenoids were grown in large-scale photobioreactors in University of Verona and in A4F Lisbon facilities. These strains have consistently demonstrated exceptional productivity levels in astaxanthin accumulation.
The next phase of the project involves field-testing our innovative products within the aquaculture. We’ll be dispatching the biomass produced to Biomar facilities for testing and incorporation into specialized feed formulations tailored for the aquaculture industry.
