Clean Seas Tuna Pleased with Progress

29 March 2012, at 1:00am

AUSTRALIA - The board of Clean Seas Tuna Limited (CSS) is pleased with the continued progress being achieved with the 2012 spawned tuna as part of the Company's Southern Bluefin Tuna breeding programme.

While there has been an expected level of losses during the early life stages to juvenile weight, the company is encouraged that the survival rate has stabilised from our strategy of holding juveniles in on-land facilities.

The company currently have 160 tuna juveniles at thirty grams, an improvement on last year at the same stageof development and our current losses are lower than previous years.

The current strategy has seen a marked stabilisation in survival response and we are optimistic that this is a suitable model for holding tuna onshore for release into sea pens in he spring.

The past few weeks has seen the successful weaning of tuna onto a anufactured diet which is well accepted by the juvenile tuna.

Clean Seas Tuna Limited also stated that Mr Marcus Stehr will retire from his operational role in the Company, effective April 2, 2012.

Mr Stehr has accepted the appointment as Executive Director of the Stehr Group as a key lement of the Stehr family's succession planning.
