New cleaning technology improves fish farming
EU-funded consortium develops a technology to protect fish tanks from harmful bacteria


The CleanHatch project is a response to increased market pressure to produce high quality but low cost fish.

Supported by the EU, the CleanHatch research team has developed an efficient cleaning technology for indoor fish farming.

By preventing bacteria proliferation in the fish tanks, it can increase the fish larvae survival rate by 10%, lowering production costs and bringing new business opportunities.
