This project aims to develop innovative solutions to control the proliferation of a parasite responsible for high mortalities in turbot produced in aquaculture. For that purpose, natural and sustainable prophylaxis/therapeutics methods will be explored towards the maximization of the strategies of fish health management under different scenarios of environmental changes.
