Marine Macro Algae Production in Aquaculture

We have recently initiated a new stage of UBQ’s entrepreneurial plan, the constructions, at “Praia dos Anjos”, of the 1st stage of production of marine micro algae in aquaculture consisting on the creation of a land platform with closed circuit tanks.

The production of macro algae on aquaculture will allow us to increase the production of biomass and raw material for UBQ. The marine macro algae are rich in bioactive compounds like carotenoids, dietetic fiber, proteins, essential fat acids, vitamins and minerals. These macro algae will be used in the preparation of UBQ’s 2nd stage products but also in the production of extracts, obtaining bifunctional components and production of alimentary supplements.

The 2nd stage of this project will consist in the installation of an offshore production of marine platforms.
