PhD student Federico Moroni, from the Department of Biotechnologies and Life Science of University of Insubria (Italy) has completed an AQUAEXCEL2020 TNA stay with IATS-Nutrigroup.

The LABFORTIFEEDBREAM TNA is aimed to assess the beneficial effects of feeds fortification with lactic acid bacteria on the growth and intestinal health of cultured gilthead sea bream. Effects on growth and performance will be complemented with transcriptomic analysis of key genes of growth and metabolism, as well as intestinal microbiome characterization. Results will be useful to evaluate the use of lactic acid bacterial not only in gilthead sea bream but also in other marine fish species.
