Breeding & genetics Post-harvest +1 more

AUSTRALIA - Australian aquaculture company Clean Seas is today flying millions of dollars worth of tuna from sea pens to its onshore breeding facility at Arno Bay in South Australia.

According to a report on ABC, about 30 divers, scientists and aquaculture technicians are involved in the operation.

About 10 southern bluefin tuna each weighing up to 200 kilograms will be lifted from the sea by helicopter and lowered into the breeding facility.

The tuna will join others in the breeding tank for the company's world-first commercialisation of aquaculture-bred southern bluefin tuna later this year.
