Nutrigenomics and Pathology groups of IATS at the University of Las Palmas

Researchers of Nutrigenomics and Fish Pathology groups of Institute of Aquaculture Torre de la Sal (IATS-CSIC) performed the second programmed sampling through the production cycle of sea bream to assess the differential effects of new diet formulations on the composition of gut microbiota of fish select for heritable growth.

The study is conducted within the framework of the AquaImpact H2020 EU project, using diets formulated by Skretting and fish from the PROGENSA selection program that are grow-out at the experimental facilities of Ecoaqua at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC).

The expect impact are new insights in the regulation and plasticity of fish gut microbiota with local and systemic effects on a wide-range of biological processes.
