Title The feeding ecology of Sole (Solea solea) in an Integrated multitrophic aquaculture system (IMTA) with the ragworm (Nereis virens)

High growth rates of S. solea could only be achieved with fresh diets but the use of live feed on a commercial scale is restricted by their availability and high price. With the development of commercial polychaete aquaculture an opportunity may arise to utilize polychaetes as an important feed source for cultured Sole. The present research focuses on the potential of Sole culture in an IMTA with the ragworm. The objectives are to determine the feed intake, growth performance and nutrient efficiency of Sole fed on ragworm, to investigate the fish
