Over 30 years experience in aquaculture, fish nutrition, physiology and nutrigenomics

The Nutrigenomics Group focuses its research activity on gilthead sea bream, but also deals with studies in other fish species (European sea bass, common dentex, turbot, Senegalese sole, trout). The ultimate goal is to develop new bio-technological tools for the sustainable development of aquaculture, mainly focused on the design and validation of new cultivation and feeding strategies based on the use of alternative sources of raw materials tested to be free of bio-contaminants and with high nutritional value.

Currently, the Nutrigenomics Group participates in 4 European projects of the H2020 (AQUAEXCEL2020, PARAFISHCONTROL, PERFORMFISH, GAIN), coordinates a National AGL2014 project, and participates in a JACUMAR project (PROGENSA III). In addition, The Group has signed several R&D contracts with different companies of aquafeeds and additives (BioMar, NOREL, SPAROS), as well as with several Spanish (UB, ULPGC, IRTA) and European (University of Algarve, University of Porto) Research Groups.

The average of peer-reviewed publications of the Nutrigenomics Group is 12 SCI publications per year in the last four years (2014-2017), with an annual income of more than 400,000 €. The Group also participates actively in the organization of International Events and Dissemination Workshops aimed at R&D managers and general audiences.
