GreenVet: Unravelling the potential of marine halophyte plants as sources of innovative products with veterinary uses

GreenVet explores for the first time the potential use of selected marine halophytes in veterinary parasitology aiming to control infections with gastrointestinal nematodes in small ruminants, and also to improve animal health and meat quality.

GreenVet involves a multidisciplinary R&D approach comprising agronomists, biologists, chemists and veterinarians from Portugal (CCMAR/FMV) and France (INRA), and focuses on species with ethnoveterinary uses, abundant in the EU, with high tannin content and promising bioactivities, used as animal fodder/feed and high palatable to small ruminants.

GreenVet will contribute for the training of students in veterinary parasitology and natural products, to the advance of important economic sectors such as small ruminant’s production and natural veterinary products and thus, for regional progress, advance knowledge on biotechnological uses of halophytes, add for the sustainable use of natural resources and answer different societal challenges.
