A study published by researchers from the Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology) (IRTA) in Sant Carles de la Rápita has shown the properties of extracts of sage (Salvia officinalis) and lemon verbena (Lippia citriodora) in functional diets for fish.
The results of the study were compiled in an article published in the journal Aquaculture. These results have shown that the use of physicochemical compounds is a safe and sustainable alternative for the aquaculture industry, promoting growth, general well-being and resistance to disease in fish.
The AQUA-FISHLAB group from the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the department of Cellular Biology and Histology at the University of Murcia also participated in the research led by the IRTA, with collaboration from Natac.
