BIOFiltration and AQuaculture: an Evaluation of Substrate Deployment Performance with Mariculture Developments
WELCOME TO THE BIOFAQs WEBSITE
BIOFAQs was supported by the European Commission through the 5th framework programme for "Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources"
This project aimed to demonstrate the effectiveness of 'biofilters' (biological filters) on reducing the environmental impact of intensive mariculture.
This pan-European project included partners from the United Kingdom, Israel, Slovenia and Greece and the objectives related to the use of biofilters in inshore coastal waters of all these countries.
The project had 3 main objectives:
The 3 year project was completed in December 2003 and the final report was sent to the EU Commission in January 2004. Results will be published in 2004 via peer-reviewed journals, trade articles and the website.
