AquaBioTech Group are excited to announce the official Kick Off Meeting for the HatcheryMatch project held on 13th July 2021.

HatcheryMatch is a two-year Science and Technology Cooperation Sino-Malta Fund Project between Maltese partners AquaBioTech Group and The Department of Food Sciences and Nutrition at the L-Università ta’ Malta and Chinese partners Fishery Machinery and Instrument Research Institute and Qingdao Blue Granary Ocean Fishery Development Co., Ltd., under the thematic priority Maritime & Aquaculture. The HatcheryMatch project aims to develop four new automation technologies which will improve water quality, embryonic categorization, and feeding and in turn reduce stress and losses during the hatchery phase of fish lifecycles in aquaculture.

The Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) is providing funding and support on behalf of Malta, whilst collaborating with the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China (MOST) under the framework of the Agreement on Science and Technological Cooperation between the Government of Malta and the Government of the People’s Republic of China and subsequent agreements by the Joint Commission on Science and Technology.

This project will help to further progress aquaculture in both China and in Malta and promote research collaboration between researchers in the two countries.
