Cross-Border Innovations in Arctic Aquaculture (ARCTAQUA)
The strength of ARCTAQUA project is gained through shared and supplemented research experience within the international consortium supported by collaboration with SMEs from Russia, Sweden, Finland and Norway, which creates an inter-disciplinary approach. ARCTAQUA project is aimed at accomplishing collective objectives of the project partners, encouraging innovation, attracting potential investors and exchanging the gained expertise.
The documents confirming the concept of the industrial development of the fish farming (aquaculture) sector will be distributed among the end users or the market leaders in the field at such events as open working meetings where all the stakeholders will be involved, i.e. fish farmers, farmed fish retail companies, regional governmental and legislative organizations etc.
