Current technologies are not sufficiently sustainable as they suffer from high mortality, low stocking densities and quality losses of the food upon prolonged transportation and storage periods, that makes live seafood inaccessible for many potential customers and markets. The main reason for the above described limitations is the accumulation of a toxic metabolite (nonionic ammonia, NH3(aq)) in water during the transportation and storage of the live seafood, even at low temperatures. This project aims at the development of novel systems for seafood transportation and storage which are based on a physicalchemical technology that has been previously developed and tested for fish production in recirculating aquaculture systems. The technology will be adapted to ensure high-density autonomous operation for >4 weeks without jeopardizing the products.
Development and implementation of new technology for transportation and storage of live seafood
Marine and/or terrestrial transportation and storage of live seafood is an inevitable step in the food producer-consumer chain.

Increasing nutritional value (bio-stimulated) of selected performant tomato varieties to be cultivated in areas with temperate climate
In temperate climate, the average yield/ha of tomato is significantly lower than international standards. The major objectives are to look for, evaluate and to select processing tomato cultivars best...
Suitable materials for meat, fish & poultry have constraints such as the need for an oxygen barrier & stability at higher temperatures, so wide-scale use of alternatives has so far...
