Bluefin tuna accounts for 10% of all tuna species and its rich, fatty textures attracts sushi lovers all over the world. A growing demand for Pacific, Atlantic and Southern Bluefin tuna has placed these wild stocks at risk. Current tuna farming or fattening practices require feeding large quantities of whole wild fish.
Skretting is continuing to work to develop commercial aquaculture diets for tuna that cover the whole life cycle. The availability of a commercial diet will be a major step forward for the tuna industry, bringing significant advantages in terms of nutrition, feed management, biosecurity and sustainability.
