Group CSIC1

The Nutrigenomics group focuses its research activity on sea bream, but also undertakes studies on other fish species (sea bass, dentex, turbot, sole, trout). The ultimate goal is to develop new bio-technological tools for the sustainable development of aquaculture through the design and validation of new farming and feeding strategies based on the use of additives and alternative sources of raw materials free of bio-pollutants and of high nutritional value.

Currently, the Nutrigenomics Group participates in 3 European H2020 projects (AQUAEXCEL3.0, AquaIMPACT, EatFISH), and is coordinating the ThinkinAzul Program (2022-2025) in the Valencian Community, with the participation of 39 research groups and a budget of 10 million euros. The group also collaborates regularly with feed and additives companies (SPAROS, BioMar, NOREL) and Spanish (UB, ULPGC, IRTA) and European research groups (Ifremer, CIIMAR, INRAE, University of Insubria) in the framework of Projects, contracts and Transnational Accesses.

The average number of publications of the group in the last five years (2018-2022) is 13 SCI publications/year with an annual income of more than 400,000€. The group also actively participates in the organization of International Events and Dissemination Conferences aimed at R&D managers and the general public.
