ULTFARMS

Circular low trophic offshore aquaculture in wind farms and restoration of marine space

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Revolutionizing low-trophic aquaculture in offshore wind farms for a sustainable future

Project ULTFARMS is a pioneering Horizon Europe Ocean Mission project that is set to transform the future of Low-Trophic Aquaculture (LTA) systems. Our project is designed to optimise production of LTA systems in harsh offshore conditions and low-salinity environments through the integration of innovative engineering, technical, ecological, and biological processes. ULTFARMS will generate a profitable, sustainable, and ecological production chain of low-trophic level species, such as seaweed and molluscs, in offshore wind farms located in the North Sea and Baltic Sea. Led by Deltares, an independent institute for water and subsurface research based in the Netherlands, ULTFARMS is a 42-month project that started on January 1st, 2023, and ends on June 30th, 2026. Our consortium consists of 25 members from 9 different countries, including stakeholders from across the value chains of OWF and LTA.
