Visit to the Andalusian Aquaculture Technology Centre - CTAQUA

We will take an up-close-and-personal look at the work of the Andalusian Aquaculture Technology Centre, meeting the needs of the aquaculture and foodstuffs sectors, rolling out tailor-made solutions for their various technical and production processes.

In El Puerto de Santa María (Cádiz), CTAQUA homes in on innovation as a driver of competitiveness and economic growth for businesses, and in the aquaculture sector it focuses mainly on planning, business advisory and optimisation of production. In the marine foodstuffs sector it has a wealth of experience in marketing, corporate and institutional cooperation, the implementation of environmental measures and improvements to food technologies.

It has carried out a number of projects, for instance, concentrating on the applications of macroalgae and microalgae, interaction between aquaculture and the environment, the cultivation of different aquatic species in the same space, or the creation of new added-value foodstuffs such as sea chorizo from fishery or aquaculture by-products.
