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.
Regarding this, David Chavarrías, director of Pescanova Biomarine Center, said: “Our commitment to animal welfare and respect is firm throughout the aquaculture process. Working with KIMITEC will allow us to advance research to cultivate crops in a more sustainable, safe, and healthy way”.
Finally, Félix García Moreno, CEO, and founder of Kimitec and MAAVi added: “With this agreement, we join Nueva Pescanova’s commitment. Which will help to strengthen thanks to our know-how in biological solutions and technologies that we have developed over 15 years.”
Nueva Pescanova does not stop investing in new projects. For example, as we informed in February the opening of the first octopus farm in the world.
