Akva, Clean Seas to build bluefin tuna hatchery

Akva Group on Monday announced it has contracted with Clean Seas Tuna to build a UNI-recirculation marine hatchery to raise southern bluefin tuna.

The hatchery will be located at Clean Sea’s Arno Bay facility in South Australia and will include broodstock facilities, a hatchery, a nursery and live feed production tailored to bluefin tuna.

“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,” said Knut Molaug, Akva president and CEO. “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.”
