TRANSDOTT, will be using eggs from broodstock and production cage sources in Malta and Spaidn and from broodstocks in Croatia through a recently signed MOU with Kali Tuna (Umami). Eggs will be transported to 5 different hatcheries in Spain, Malta, Israel (2) and Italy. For the first time a full commercial application of copepod diets will be assessed in Futuna Blue´s new facility in Spain and the successful dry diets for weaning and grow-out produced by Skretting ARC can be used to the full. Sustainable aquaculture of Atlantic Bluefin is at the threshold of becoming as successful as the Japanese (Kinki Univ.) industry for the Pacific Bluefin Tuna.
