Tuna breakthrough to help aquaculture

Date: 1/4/2008

Clean Seas Tuna created a world-first by breeding southern bluefish tuna at its facility on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula. The company said the successful collection of significant quantities of tuna sperm and eggs, spawned by captive fish in a breeding facility at Arno Bay, would allow sustainable production of the endangered species. Successfully recreating the natural breeding cycle of one of the world’s premier pelagic fish species is a key step towards ensuring sustainability of this species at a time when wild stocks are under significant pressure.
