Producing advanced bio-based fertilizers from fisheries wastes - SEA2LAND
The aim of SEA2LAND is to valorize waste/residues from fishereis and aquaculture as fertilisers and soil improvers. This is a European project with partners from Malta and other Meditranean countries in the south to Norway in the north as well as in Chile in South America. A large number of products will be developed and tested across Europe. The goal is to develop products ready for market. In Norway we will focus on fish sludge from aquaculture.
