Breakthrough in feed research shows promise for sustainable tuna farming

Despite efforts to create closed-cycle tuna cultivation systems, most "farmed" tuna today are actually caught in wild as juveniles and fattened to market size in ocean pens.

The possibility of truly sustainable tuna aquaculture is now closer to reality due to a recent breakthrough in feed formulation research, which was presented at the Offshore Mariculture Conference last month in Ensenada, Mexico, by Dr. Alejandro Buentello of Ichthus Unlimited LLC.

A video, "Feeding Bluefin," summarizing the research project and its potential impact on protecting endangered wild tuna stocks can be viewed on YouTube at http://bit.ly/2nCPb
