Over the next 5 years, the EU project DIVERSIFY will study a number of new/emerging finfish species, with great potential for the EU aquaculture industry. These new/emerging species (meagre, greater amberjack, wreckfish, halibut, grey mullet and pikeperch) are fast growing and/or large finfishes marketed at a large size and can be processed into a range of products to provide the consumer with both a greater diversity of fish species and new value-added products. See the DIVERSIFY web site for more.
