WP2 will explore the potential of marine microbiomes (WP1), microbial strains and consortia (synthetic microbial communities) to improve the health and growth of aquaculture-relevant organisms, in particular in systems, such as marine fish larvae and molluscs, that lack environmentally sound disease control strategies.

  • Phenotype functionalities of marine microbiomes and microbial strains in aquaculture.

  • Engineer synthetic microbial consortia for improved aquaculture health.

  • Profiling the effect of microbial bioactive compounds in aquaculture.

  • Phenotyping efficacy of marine microbiomes to protect crop plants from salt stress.

  • Engineer synthetic microbial consortia for enhanced salt tolerance of crop plants.
