Title: professore associato

Association/Company: Università di Padova – Dipartimento di Biomedicina comparata e alimentazione

Biography
Associate Professor of Veterinary Physiology at the Department of Comparative Biomedicine and Nutrition, University of Padova. Areas of research and teaching related to the welfare and reproduction of farmed fish. He has participated in several national and international projects related to farmed species in the field of welfare, reproduction and improvement in aquaculture and has active collaborations with commercial production facilities. He is mainly dedicated to the research and evaluation of stress parameters and to the development of in-plant reproduction protocols, also in support of selection programs, by evaluating the quality of gametes and larvae to improve welfare and productivity.

Speech
Fish-PhotoCAT Photocatalytic water remediation for sustainable fish farming

Abstract
Fish-PhotoCAT is a project funded under the PRIMA (Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area) programme that aims at investigating the efficiency of a smart purification system to improve water quality, fish production and environmental sustainability in aquaculture systems, through the remediation of nitrogen containing compounds in water and the biocidal action of a TiO2-based photocatalytic treatment. In detail, the project aspires to develop an innovative photocatalytic reactor, by modifying the traditional filter systems used in RAS aquaculture, to obtain a new low cost generation system for fresh and sea water purification and it will be tested on the entire productive cycle of two important aquaculture species: the Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss, fresh water) and the Gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata, sea water). The effect of the treated water on fish health will be assessed on recirculating systems by means of: 1) evaluation of the water quality in terms of residual nitrogen-containing compounds and microbial community; 2) morpho-functional and physiological analysis in the early life stage, to evaluate development, growth, larval/fry deformities and environmental stress response; 3) morpho-functional and physiological analyses at the commercial size, to evaluate welfare, productivity, fillet quality parameters and safety.  The Research Consortium is composed by the Universities of Milan, Padova and Suez Canal (Egypt) and the Institute National des Sciences et Technologies de la Mer  (Tunisia).
