Code of Conduct

The PerformFISH project recognises that sustainable aquaculture should be an all-encompassing term. Therefore PerformFISH is dedicated not only to the advancement of Mediterranean marine fish farming (MMFF) technologies and processes, but also to ensuring that the sector progresses in a way that is beneficial for local communities, the environment, producers and consumers.

This Code of Conduct has been developed by PerformFISH partners in collaboration with relevant stakeholders. It acknowledges the elevated nutritional, economic, social, environmental, and cultural importance of MMFF. It embraces and promotes the interests of all those concerned with this industry and provides a common quality framework to strengthen MMFF.

PerformFISH e-Atlas manual for sampling, molecular biology procedures and gene primer collection, skeletal morphology and histopathology

The present version of the e-Atlas integrates the sampling manual, molecular biology procedures and gene primer collection (an extensive resource of primers optimised for gilthead sea bream and European sea bass, CCMAR and UTH), skeletal morphology section with methods and illustrations of normal and abnormal skeletal development (University of Crete), and also a histopathology section providing a tissue specific description of normal and modified tissue morphology (University of Udine). It is hoped this e-Atlas will become a resource that can be used by all hatcheries of the aquaculture sector involved in production of sea bream and sea bass juveniles. The e-Atlas is part of the PerformFISH legacy and will be a resource that remains alive for several years after completion of the project.
