Istituto Sperimentale Italiano Lazzaro Spallanzani Aquaculture



The Aquaculture sector, with an installation covering a surface of over 1000 m², is dedicated to the implementation of technologies for genetic improvement in salt- and freshwater fish species and the development and improvement of reproductive and breeding techniques. The research activities cover issues going from the development of viable sperm cryopreservation techniques to the genetic characterization of fish stock. The sector is involved in conservation and repopulation programs of species which are at risk of extinction, e.g. Garda Lake Carp (Salmo carpio), the bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) and the Adriatic sturgeon (Acipenser naccarii). It is equipped with two microalgae labs dedicated, respectively, to the development of technologies for experimental cultivation of microalgae strains aimed at bioremediation and to the production of bioactive molecules for cosmetic, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical purposes. This sector actively collaborates with fish hatchery centres, fish farms and with nationally and internationally recognized research centres.
