WP4 will incorporate the results from previous WPs into fish feed formulations and be tested via feed trials for commercially important freshwater European farmed fish: Atlantic salmon smolt, rainbow trout, common carp, and European perch. Innovative solutions that reduce environmental pressure and valorise aquaculture waste streams will be developed and validated through WPs1-4.


  • Formulate and produce sustainable functional and practical novel feeds with optimised inclusion levels biomasses produced in WP2 for Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), common carp (Cyprinus carpio) and European perch (Perca fluviatilis).
  • Validate and assess the benefits of novel feeds on growth and health performances, food safety and robustness metrics, ensuring fish welfare, legislative compliance and consumer acceptance.
