Emílio Salas Leitón

PhD degree in the field of Marine Sciences, my research career has been basically focused on aquaculture, namely, the optimisation of key cultivation parameters in fish species with a high commercial value. Among other, my studies have paid special attention to issues related to nutritional conditions, assessing their potential effects on growth, health and stress of reared fish.

In the recent years, I have participated in research projects aimed the Maritime Spatial Planning and the small-scale fishery, in both cases considering the Portuguese North Region as study area.
