ULTFARMS aims to demonstrate a profitable, sustainable and eco-friendly low-trophic food (molluscs and seaweed) production from offshore aquaculture activities shared within windfarms in the North Sea and Baltic Sea. Six pilots will be implemented that combine low-trophic aquaculture (LTA) in six different offshore windfarms (OWF) across four northern European countries: Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. These pilots will allow the development of transferable and replicable systems for successful implementation and operation of low-trophic aquaculture within offshore windfarms. Within ULTFARMS, MARECO is responsible for the environmental assessment of multi-use combining LTA and OWF and participates in the Belgian pilot’s activities.
