Ecofeed project

ECOS, with the companies Besmar Aquaculture and Interaqua Canarias are carrying out the Ecofeed Project, co-funding for the European Unión (Eco-innovation call 2012). The Ecofeed project, coordinated by ECOS, is based in an open water aquaculture feed system characterized to use floating feed, feeding the fish from the bottom to surface, through pipes that will inject the feed. This system reduces completely the negative effect of excess feed on the seabed, significantly minimizing environmental impact. From an industrial aspect this method will allow to recognize when fish has stop feeding and therefore manage much more accurately the food given (feed is currently more than 70% of the fish´s production cost).
