This webinar aims to present the current status of the use of algae for aquaculture. Alongside the well-established use of microalgae as part of the live feeds chain in aquaculture hatcheries, there is currently a drive to exploit microalgae in formulated aquatic feeds. There are several challenges to achieve the forecasted sustainable growth of the aquaculture sector. Namely, the urgent need of novel protein and n-3 HUFA sources. Moreover, the aquafeed feed industry is constantly seeking innovative nutritional ingredients that could add value (nutritional or other) to their traditional feeds during sensitive periods of the production cycle or specific situations resulting from farming practices. Although still emerging as an industry, algae biomasses show a great potential in the aquafeed sector.
