Welcome to Aquolive
with bioactives from olive biomass
A Project by Natac
Our group is a leading biotechnology-based company specialised in the research, development, production, and commercialisation of high added-value bioactive ingredients from biomass to serve the needs of different industrial sectors.
The primary objective of the AQUOLIVE project is to develop and launch an innovative additive from a natural source that the salmon aquaculture industry will use to increase fish resilience and quality in a cost-effective way.
The European Commision Supports Aquolive
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 830202.
Fish farmers lose productivity and profitability
Plant-based substitutes have demonstrated partial capacity to support fish growth, however they compromise fish meat nutritional quality, and increase the use of hazardous medications.
Aquolive, a solution for fish farmers
Aquolive Project aims to offer a high-performance feed additive based on our patented formulation of bioactive phytochemicals obtained from olive trees.
This solution will help salmon farmers to increase their productivity and profitability, while reducing the use of hazardous antimicrobial compounds and medications in intensive aquaculture practices.
What will we achieve?
AQUOLIVE will be sold as a cost-effective and high-performance
feed additive obtained from by-products of olive trees.
Increase productivity and profitability
Improve salmon meat quality for human consumption
Boost fish wellness and resilience
Enhance animal health and welfare
Make aquaculture sustainable
THE REAL STATS
We have proved
Aquaculture sustainability: A Global & Increasing Challenge
Aquolive project will boost aquaculture sustainability through a link between olive farmers from southern Europe and Norwegian salmon producers, by the valorisation of olive biomass, and the improvement of salmon quality and productivity, in a circular economy basis.
