EM6 19 TECH bio foulingNanotechnology, organic polymers and neurotransmitters

Marine biofouling, or biological fouling, the accumulation of plant and animal growth on natural hard structures and man-made constructions from ships to the net enclosures used in aquaculture, is a serious problem worldwide. In the past this growth was mostly fought with chemical means but this often creates additional problems because the methods pollute the environment. Following intensive research new solutions are now emerging.

Spain: Creating more secure marine fish farms

EM1 20 News Int ApromarA new publication in Spanish, Acuicultura marina. Granjas marinas de peces. Diseño y operación (Marine aquaculture. Marine finfish farms — Design and Operation) has been produced following a year’s work by the Spanish Association for Standardisation (UNE) and APROMAR, the Spanish Aquaculture Producers Association. The publication covers the design, construction, and proper maintenance of marine aquaculture farms to reduce possible technical and operational failures and to avoid the possibility of escapes caused by accidental impacts during daily operations or by unexpected events. It lists good practices that fish farmers can implement to make Spanish marine aquaculture more sustainable.
