WHAT IS IMTA?

The Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) is acknowledged as a promising solution for the sustainable development of aquaculture.

IMTA refers to the integrated farming of several species from different trophic levels in close proximity. In IMTA, one species is intended to complete another. With the multi-trophic approach, aquaculture of fed organisms (finfish or shrimp) is combined with the culture of organisms that extract either dissolved inorganic nutrients (seaweeds) or particulate organic matter (shellfish) and hence, the biological and chemical processes at work balance each other.
