The Department of Applied Hydrobiology belongs to the Faculty of Animal Science and Aquaculture (FASA) that is part of the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA). The University was founded in 1920 and is the third oldest University in Greece. The purpose of FASA is to train highly skilled scientists capable in applying the principles of biology, technology and economics in issues related to the production of farm and aquatic animals. The scientific fields covered by the Faculty are interdisciplinary as they combine Animal Husbandry, Veterinary Science, Aquaculture, Genetics, Nutrition, Physiology, Molecular Biology, Hygiene, Biotechnology, Economics, Ethology and Management. The ultimate aim of the Faculty is research and education towards improved Animal Production and Aquaculture. The Department of Applied Hydrobiology (DAH) has excellent facilities for rearing fish and other aquatic organisms in recirculating systems of sea water and/or fresh water and the appropriate infrastructure for performing the following analyses: a) Water chemical analyses: dissolved oxygen, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphorus, suspended solids, pH, salinity, etc., b) Biochemical analyses: 1) Large range of haematological parameters (triglycerides, cholesterol, total lipids, albumin, glucose, cortisol, osmolality, haematocrit, etc.). 2) Carcass proximate composition (lipids, protein, moisture, ash). 3) Liver total lipids, glycogen, moisture, etc. 4) Dietary fatty acid composition, as well as that of liver, muscle and visceral fat. The personnel of the Department of Applied Hydrobiology (DAH) have excellent experience on the growth performance, physiology, behavior, nutrition and chemical composition of aquatic animals.

Helen Miliou will be in charge of Sub-Task 1.1.2. AUA-DAH will contribute to the project working on the co-culture of sea bass and Ulva in indoor seawater Recirculating Aquaculture System for studying the role of aquatic plants in nutrients cycling in IMTA and for comparing strategies of species and compartments associations in order to increase the system efficiency. Dissolved inorganic nutrients will be measured in water of the different compartments. Chemical composition of Ulva and sea bass fed two different diets (containing oil of plant origin or not) in two separate systems will be determined. Fatty acid profiles of co-cultured organisms and system biofilter will be estimated and used as biomarkers and qualitative indices of organisms/system fitness.
