Title: “Unlocking the nutritional and technical Quality potential of Marine by-products in sustainable salmonid feeds (QMAR)”.

The idea behind the project is to uncover potential nutritional and technical properties in the marine residual raw material at use in fish feed. Marine residual raw material have a huge nutritional and technical value in fish feed. With the increasing inclusion levels of plant components in diet, it is essential ensure that specific marine ingredients are the most bio-active/most potent in order to stay competitive.
