online course on
Creating nutritious, safe and sustainable seafood for consumers of tomorrow

This e-learning provides continuing professional development for those working in the seafood sector and training materials for those entering the blue economy. It covers topics relevant to SEAFOODTOMORROW , which aimed to improve the socioeconomic and environmental sustainability of seafood production, while also contributing to product quality and safety and consumer acceptability of fish and seafood products.

The elearning is free-of-charge for all users.

Description

Having sufficient safe and nutritious food is essential for the 7.2 billion people currently living on the planet. However, it is expected that, by 2050, at least an additional 2 billion people will need to be fed, with a ca. 1% annual increased demand of food products.

 

According to OECD-FAO, ocean resources (including fisheries and aquaculture productions) are indispensable for addressing these challenges. However, a variety of complex risks need to be addressed within the seafood sector, due to the likely increased pressure on natural resources and additional impacts on environment and conservation interests (e.g. over-exploitation, pollution, declining biodiversity and climate change) to ensure future approaches as responsible and sustainable.

The EU-funded project SEAFOODTOMORROW developed these e-learning modules in response to a gap identified in existing training and learning resources around innovative products and techniques for environmentally friendly seafood products for target groups (children, pregnant women, and seniors) as well as improved processing methods.

This elearning aims to improve professional skills and competences of those working, or being trained to work, in the seafood industry, with particular focus on managers. They were developed based on results from a stakeholder consultation that explored users’ needs, existing resources, and identified gaps in existing provision. Students and researchers might also find the modules useful, as they describe recent developments in the field of seafood safety, quality, and sustainability.

Iodine biofortification of rainbow trout with sugar kelp
Iodine biofortification of rainbow trout with sugar kelp

Seaweed are rich in iodine, and fish biofortified with f.ex. sugar kelp can substitute the iodine supply, which wild fish was a major source of, a mineral essential to prevent brain damage in human childhood. A 12 week trial to study Iodine biofortification in rainbow trout using 1, 2 or 4% sugar kelpmeal, showed that 2% inclusion in feed gave good growth performance and resulted in fish fillets with 0.55 mg iodine/kg fillet. Intake of 160 g fillet contributes 60% to recommended daily iodine intake.

Integrated Multitrophic Aquaculture (IMTA)
Integrated Multitrophic Aquaculture (IMTA)

An integrated multi trophic aquaculture (IMTA) system involves organisms at different trophic levels that are organized so waste from a species, at a higher level, can serve as food for organisms at a lower trophic level. In an IMTA with salmon and seaweed, S.latissima is deployed close to the salmon cages in such a way that it can utilize dissolved inorganic nitrogen, phosphate, and carbon compounds released as waste, from the salmon, for growth. The concept benefits seaweed growth, utilization of nutrients, better utilization of the aquaculture site, and benefits the environment.

Enzyme assay for the detection of xenobiotics

This lecture describes the development of enzymatic assays for the detection of environmental contaminants (PAHs, BFRs and PFCs) in seafood. Measurement protocols consist of three steps: i) extraction and pre-concentration of contaminants; ii) detection using an enzyme inhibition assay, and iii) interpretation of results. These assays are easy to use, reduce response times, consumption of reagents, and need for expensive trained labour during analysis.

Neural networks and modelling of HABs

The use of neural networks as a modelling strategy to predict blooming of marine microalgae will be addressed. Prediction of harmful algal blooms (HABs) contributes to better assessment of the risk these microalgae might cause to shellfish producers and consumers. In this lecture, we demonstrate how data analysis on microalgae abundances and environmental data can be handled to develop predictive models using neural networks that facilitate management actions by predicting occurrences of blooms.

Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) has significant economic impact due to the closure of production areas. SEAFOODTOMORROW has developed a processing method to detoxify bivalves with PSP contents above the EU legal limit. A modification of a PSP detoxifying procedure, established by Decision 96/77/EC in Acanthocardia tuberculatum, was adapted for PSP elimination in other bivalves. The protocol was applied to mussels, clams, and scallops and achieved detoxification rates of 85% or more.

How can the quality and safety of seafood you eat be guaranteed? With our approach, we can ensure the consumer eats what has been paid for.

  • A reference database is setup to confirm species in the meal, using genetic methods
  • Our traceability system, which is QR-code based, means consumers can identify what has happened from boat to fork
  • Beneficial aspects of fish are gathered in a benchmark tool and, based on our label, consumer can assess the impact of their choices on fish stocks and the environment.
