In this section you will find a selection of scientific papers and articles published in peer-reviewed journals. These papers are currently divided into two categories: one concerning the nutrition and husbandry of zebrafish and the other concerning the characterization of molecules from phytoplankton (dinoflagellates).

You’ll find publications that serve as references in the development of our nutritional solutions as well as publications to which we have directly contributed and which are related to R&D activities.
