Production methods to optimise economical and environmental sustainability in aquaculture and apiculture sectors

This pilot project aims to develop new production methods in aquaculture and apiculture in order to optimise production costs and increase environmental sustainability. It will be implemented via training and exchange of experts between the American University of Armenia (AUA) and the Danish company Dianova.

During the first year, the activities will be focused on the topic of sustainable aquaculture. The Danish experts will organise a number of training sessions on water recirculation systems, monitoring of effluents from aquaculture facilities, disease monitoring and control systems, and quality parameters.  

During the second year, the team will continue its work on aquaculture but will also exchange on apiculture topic related to the production of honey. The interest of AUA is to learn more on the formalisation of existing practices on prevention of bee diseases; and the creation of guideline for honey processing.
