Japan - Agency to promote tuna farming on land

Japan - Agency to promote tuna farming on land | Fisheries science! | Scoop.it

.Like eel, bluefin tuna, which is highly prized as sushi, is also in danger of extinction.

According to the science committee of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission, there were only 23,000 tons of Pacific bluefin tuna, less than one-fifth of its peak of about 130,000 tons in 1960.

As global demand is expected to rise in tandem with the sushi boom overseas, a stable supply of farmed tuna, which accounts for one-third of the domestic supply, is essential to securing sufficient supplies for Japan.

In June, the Fisheries Research Agency began a project to farm tuna in huge tanks on land. The agency will place 2-year-old tuna in a pair of 20-meter wide, six-meter deep tanks in Nagasaki, and collect their eggs in two years.

The eggs will be transferred to a tank on Kakeroma Island in Kagoshima Prefecture. When the young fish grow to about six centimeters long, they will be released into a pen in the ocean.
