Oyster Farming is a sustainable activity with enormous growth potential.

The main objective of ERGOMARINE project is to study and optimize the ergonomic aspects of oyster and seafood aquaculture along its value chain, in dialogue with producers and the scientific community. Through Ergonomics, it intends to improve working conditions and increase the efficiency and quality of oyster production, developing a portfolio of innovative tools and instruments, in recycled plastic, including oyster cylinders or cable and network fasteners.

Furthermore, it will also be engaged in promoting greater knowledge and interest in aquaculture, a sustainable and affordable source of high-quality proteins, on a planet where food resources are low.
