UK - AKVA group has signed a new contract with Clean Seas Tuna (Stehr Group) for the delivery of a complete UNI-recirculation marine hatchery for Southern Bluefin Tuna.

The facility will be located at Clean Sea's Arno Bay facility in South Australia.

The new recirculation system will consist of broodstock facilities, hatchery, nursery and live feed production.

Construction will start immediately, and will be commissioned before the end of the year.

The hatchery is tailored to the advanced Southern Bluefin Tunarearing technology, and is the result of long term cooperation between biologists and engineers from both Stehr and AKVA group.

"This contract with Stehr Group is a follow-up on the historical breakthrough made last year of reproducing the first farmed Southern Bluefin Tuna fry.

It is the result of a long-term cooperation with Clean Seas Tuna, and we are excited to be a part of developing this new species in aquaculture, says President and CEO of AKVA group, Knut Molaug.

AKVA group has more than 30 years of aquaculture engineering experience, and the team of world leading experts is renowned for designing sustainable state-of-the-art recirculation systems.

Having successfully delivered systems globally for more than 15 different species, AKVA group is the global leader in farming technology for "new species".
