The Nueva Pescanova Group has reached an agreement with MAAVi, Kimitec’s new R&D facilities, to continue obtaining organic and healthy products. This will improve the quality of species and their habitat in aquaculture.

Firstly, they will investigate the development of natural probiotics to upgrade animals’ immune systems, showing passive protection. In addition, there will be a research on the elaboration of new foods for cultivated species. Such as the parts of the fish already caught that are not used for human consumption; or in new natural products that protect them from possible diseases.
