WP3: Curative: removal of geosmin and 2MIB from culture water

This WP targets the off flavour problem at the point where geosmin and MIB have been produced and excreted to the fish culture water. The goal is to prevent bio-accumulation in fish by removal of these compounds from the water.

Recent advances in the microbiological degradation of geosmin and MIB, including identification and controlled growth of microbiota capable of degrading these compounds, opened the way to the design of biological reactors that remove geosmin and MIB from water. 

WP2 delivers the design criteria the manufacturing of industrial scale off flavour treatment reactors developed in WP5.
