ANITEST. Un método de evaluación de la viabilidad de anisakis para una acuicultura libre de anisáquidos

Aquaculture is considered an anisakis-free sector and this is a quality seal to maintain. Anisakis species (Anisakis spp.) are, however, ubiquitous in the sea and can reach fish whether fed with fresh fish instead of feed. It is therefore advisable to maintain constant vigilance to avoid infections associated with risk practices and routines that still exist in aquaculture. The objectives of this project are to identify the main reasons explaining remaining risks in aquaculture, analyze them, provide tools for risk assessment and guidelines to avoid them and explore the real risk of anisakis infection in practices of fresh fish feeding. The achievement of these objectives will allow providing guidelines and prevention tools, useful for the sectors involved and the consumers. This project (2020-21) will be developed during 2020-2021 with the collaboration of the Biodiversity Foundation, of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, through the Pleamar call, co-financed by FEMP.
