HIGH QUALITY WATER AND FISH FROM PRE-ALPINE AUSTRIA

Supported by the provincial government of Lower Austria, we report about research on water quality and fish from aquaculture as well as rivers of pre-Alpine Austria. Our research clearly shows that cold pre-alpine water, rich in oxygen and low in nutrients provides an excellent basis for local aquaculture. Current research investigates how to maintain high quality of water and fish by partly replacing marine-based feeds with locally grown substitutes.
