WELCOME
   FROM OUR COORDINATOR
A very warm welcome to the first newsletter of the SEAFOODTOMORROW project. This new, exciting H2020 funded Innovation Action has the ambitious aim to increase the availability of healthier seafood for consumers, which will improve our diet and health, matters that are in everyone’s personal interest. The knowledge and information that will be produced in this 3-year project will allow us as consumers to make better-informed seafood choices, something we can apply on a practical basis in our daily lives.

ABOUT
INTRODUCTION TO SEAFOODTOMORROW
One of the most important food commodities consumed in Europe is seafood. Using knowledge-led, eco-innovative solutions based on state-of-the-art research, SEAFOODTOMORROW is developing new environmentally-friendly and transparent seafood production and processing methods that will support European seafood security and quality in line with market demands. Read more
INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS TO IMPROVE EUROPEAN FOOD SECURITY
SEAFOODTOMORROW will develop and validate innovative solutions to support European seafood security, bringing benefits to consumers, industry, environment and society. SEAFOODTOMORROW centres around six solutions, each addressed by one of our work packages. Read more
EXPECTED RESULTS
Addressing the challenge to meet the growing market need for safe and sustainable seafood, SEAFOODTOMORROW will generate new knowledge to develop commercial solutions for improving the socio-economic and environmental sustainability of the European seafood production and processing industry.

   INTRODUCING THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY CHAIR
Within SEAFOODTOMORROW, Intellectual Property, Communication and Industrial Advisory committees have been put in place to provide input, feedback and direction to the project in line with the need of the seafood production and processing sector. In this issue we meet the chair of the Intellectual Property Committee (IPC), Dr Johan Robbens, to learn more about his role within the project. Read more
PROGRESS UPDATES
In each newsletter, we will feature updates about the innovative solutions being developed by the seven work packages that make up SEAFOODTOMORROW. In this issue, we meet Kit Granby (WP1 leader) and Maria Leonor Nunes (WP2) and learn about the work undertaken by both teams.
   WORK PACKAGE 1 
Work Package 1 focuses on eco-innovative solutions for sustainable seafood production. We spoke with Work Package 1 leader Kit Granby (DTU, Denmark) about what this entails, such as new fish feed ingredients, marine toxins and the impacts of global warming. To read the interview, click here.
   WORK PACKAGE 2
In this insightful discussion, Work Package 2 leader Maria Leonor Nunes (CIIMAR, Portugal) talks us through sustainable seafood processing. The key objectives of the work package include production of reduced salt seafood, and seafood adapted for specific population groups such as pregnant women, seniors and children.

INDUSTRY CORNER 
SEAFOODTOMORROW is designed to develop and validate an array of innovative solutions, technologies, processes and strategies to boost sustainability and competitiveness of the European seafood sector. In order to help define these solutions and ensure they cater for industry needs, an Industrial Advisory Committee (IAC) has been established. Here, we meet Maurizio Notarfonso (SPES, Federalimentare, Italy), chair of the IAC, as he explains the committee’s role. Read more.
HIGHLIGHTS
BUFFER ZONES: Tracking norovirus and marine biotoxins in the marine environment to select appropriate areas for shellfish farming and protect consumers
Shellfish, when grown in coastal areas, can be exposed to pollutants, marine biotoxins and other noxious substances. Project partners CEFAS, IRTA and WCM are collaborating on the development of mathematical models to predict the levels of these substances in shellfish to ensure a safe final product. To find out more, click here.
IMTA SYSTEMS: COMMERCIALLY & ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS
Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture systems (IMTAs) have a number of significant benefits to traditional aquaculture systems, with mutual benefit for fish and the surrounding ecosystem. The IMTAs consist of a salmon aquaculture cage with a field of macroalgae, like a ‘marine wall’ of seaweed, grown on ropes in close proximity. In this system the dissolved organic nitrogen and phosphorous produced by the fish is recycled back into macroalgae biomass. Read more
  FISH RECIPES CHALLENGE
SEAFOODTOMORROW beneficiaries IDmer (France) and Ethic Ocean (France) are coordinating the SEAFOODTOMORROW Recipes Challenge. This competition challenges six research institutes (ANFACO, CIIMAR, IDmer, RISE, ILVO and ZUT) based in Spain, Portugal, France, Sweden, Belgium, and Poland, respectively, to create new and exciting fish recipes for three target groups, namely senior citizens, pregnant women and children (8-10 years old).
