SPAIN: Balearic Sea becomes key to predict bluefin tuna population dynamics

SPAIN: Balearic Sea becomes key to predict bluefin tuna population dynamics | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

A team of researchers and technicians of the Balearic Oceanographic Centres and Malaga of the Spanish Institute of Oceanography (IEO) has just finished a new study of the Balearic Sea, one of the main spawning areas for bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) worldwide.

 

The research, conducted during June and early July as part of the annual survey of the project 'Sustainable use of marine living resources: the impact of the variability of the Mediterranean on bluefin tuna reproduction and population dynamics' (BlueFin) was conducted in collaboration with the Coastal Observation System of the Balearic Islands (SOCIB).

 

On board the research vessel Socib, researchers followed bluefin tuna spawning stains and studied the physico-chemical and biological conditions of the water.

 

The purpose of these studies is to predict the spawning area and tuna larval survival, and obtain oceanographic and bluefin tuna larval abundance of red for the development of larval rates in the adult population.

 

Larval indices make it possible to relatively estimate the stock evolution of this species.

 

"The identification of larval habitats and spawning areas will serve to validate predictive models used for advice on the management of this species," the IEO stated.

 

In this year's survey a novelty is highlighted: having multiple sources of information from operational oceanography reporting on environmental conditions in the tuna migration area (Alboran-Balearic Sea), beyond the sampling area where data are obtained in situ by using oceanographic rosettes.

 

The implementation of satellite data and the large number of drifters from Alborex experiment -- in the framework of Perseus project -- makes it possible to identify the actual flow of Atlantic water masses from their entry in Gibraltar.

 

A part of these waters arrived at the Balearic Sea through two ways: directly from the Alboran Sea through filaments derived from the main stream that runs along the African coast, or by turns from that stream on the coasts of eastern Algeria, which subsequently have moved northward reaching the Levantine area of the Balearic Sea.

 

The BlueFin project, which grew out of a specific cooperation agreement between the IEO and SOCIB, will run until the end of this year. Its main objective is to develop operational models for forecasting the location of the tuna breeding area and estimates the level of the resource recruitment taking into account variations in larval survival rates resulting from changes in environmental scenarios in them.

 

This project also involved researchers from the Department of Marine Technology, Operational Oceanography and Sustainability (TMOOS) of the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA).
