Low Trophic Life Webinar: “Advances in IMTA & Biofloc. Research at UFSC”

AquaVitae series Low Trophic Life will have its second webinar. Esmeralda and Mateus from UFSC will present research results on seaweed, mullet and shrimp cultivation in biofloc system – an IMTA approach.

The live webinar took place on 17 December at 14:00 CET.

Esmeralda Chamorro Legard is an Aquaculture Production Engineering with a master and doctorate in sciences in aquaculture. She has been working with shrimp production in biofloc technology (BFT) for 9 years, and the last five years she connected the biofloc technology with integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) concept with approach in circular economy. Esmeralda is a postdoctoral student at Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina as part of the Aquavitae project.

Mateus Martins is an Undergraduate student of Aquaculture Engineering at the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), Brazil, and since the beginning of his university studies he has been involved in research at the Marine Shrimp Laboratory, an experience that has so far resulted in the publication of 11 co-authored scientific articles, among them 2 as a first author.
