The Integrated Project SEAFOODplus finished as planned on time by the end of 2008 after five full years of operation. Presently the project results are being reported and the final cost claims are being forwarded. The results have been overwhelming, as was expressed both by the External Advisory Board and by the evaluators assigned by the EC. But a success like SEAFOODplus cannot stop its operation just because the planned project period comes to an end. In June 2008 it was declared that a new research platform would be established based on the good experiences obtained in the project period. Further, new members would be invited to join the collaboration. The research platform has been established and is now open for recruiting new members.
