COSMOS aspires to enhance aquaculture production through improvement of the culture environment and innovate new technologies. The project aims to establish a novel microalgae mass culture system using recycled nutrients from aquaculture waste. The integrated aquaculture culture with microalgae production will be a useful model for adaptation in many countries for the sustainable development of the aquaculture industry.
