Completely farm raised bluefin tuna

tonight has become the victim ever own
success demand for blue fin tuna in particular
has been sharply increasing in recent times in part because of the popularity of
Japanese busy the supply however is no longer able to
keep up overfishing threatens to diminish if
even further an agreement reached at a recent
international conference will regulate the captive wild blue fin tuna and the
Pacific those who sign on hold it isn’t too late well if anyone should be concerned about
this appliance the Japanese they consume about seventy percent of
the world Pacific Blue Fin Tuna a Japanese university has come up with a
way of taking pressure of the fish it see by breeding blue fins
from fertilized eggs raised on farms
customers have been flowing into this new restaurant ever since open a month ago there all waiting in
line for a completely new culinary experience the main part of the
menu here is blue fin tuna but not just any blue fin tuna all farm
bred well the taste doesn’t taste any
different fresh had from the sea with its eat and tastes good them a total fatty tuna is comparable to that
too famous to Turkish market the restaurant is run by Kinki
University as a way of finding out if consumers
will take a liking to the farm raised fish the tuna on the menu was born n raised
at the school’s experimental farm in Wakayama Prefecture since 1970 its fisheries lab has been working too

yellowtail had already been established when he joined the project tuna was more difficult the fish are
especially sensitive a tuna would react to even subtle noises

succeeded in avoiding bad outcome by almost doubling the size of the pan
and changing the shape from cuba Lloyd two cylindrical after 32 years the team finally succeeded in farm
reading tuna from fertilized x2 full-grown fish in 2002 the next goals were bringing down costs and developing feet to create a better
consistency tuna swim vigorously and typically
consume large amounts of fish such as horse mackerel and mackerel but using fish for feed is costly mixed feed offers an alternative the researchers tried various
combinations are vitamins and fish meal they had a hard time getting to know to
accept that we have eating at first to the car or so Google social if something other than the taste of the
feed such as color or shape can weather tuners appetite we may be
able to come up with a solution with the guy has a stigma a period of
three to five years usually is necessary for tonight to become an adult that can
be shipped tune on the farm are bred on the mic
speed until they reach the age of three months the researchers are investigating how to
extend the use of the mix beat bike trying alternative content so far the long as they’ve been able to nurse a
fish with only this has been three years another avenue for boosting production could be genetic analysis last year the
team identified a gene of the blue fin tuna that can accelerate growth later
this year they plan to select individual tuna that have the gene and start reading them on the farm
University the mining private firms to participate as a way of
expanding production the school itself is overseeing the
hatching of blue fin tuna eggs the larva grow into fry and are sold to
a wholesale breeder outside the school the breeder keep the
fry for about three months when the younglings grow to about 30
centimetres they’re sold to tune a farmer’s when
they reach adulthood the fish are ready to go to market the
company that deals with the younglings has a facility in nagasaki P picture high sulfur coulda is now in the fourth
year raising fry he says the survival rate
has increased but it’s still below fifty percent on a
machine gun on you here the fish have only two winning you
serve showing their condition vigorously eating billion dollar
silently dying and I’m it easier night mother I tell readers to watch the this
constant each fish is sending a particular message
without exception we have to train people to read the
signals 7,000 at the University born to now are shipped to market annually within
two years the institution intends to further develop as technology with support from the
government that should allow it to eventually increase the number farm
redfish to 100,000 per year to that end it set up a wholly owned
firm that promotes everything from research all the way to the Salem Barbara tuna
Malaysia it what would you think about starting a
farm in Malaysia on net overseas production is under
consideration to ensure a steady supply through the use of diverse locales or to
your sample hellish cable what if I hope to create
alliances with major businesses and expand the number of farms they are my whole our tuna farming will
not will spread across the globe then indians tiny cottle eurozone with a guy
not the only from arms to kitchen if the university project can
succeed it will earn the appreciation and diners
around the world and in their own way perhaps even that
banks have the tuna population at sea and

  1. If the fishing authorities raised and paid for tens of millions of the fry up to three months old and regularly released them into the wild,they would grow and feed naturally.The fish stocks would replenish and the authorities could tax the ever increasing catch to pay for the initial costs . Breeding from the strongest stock would produce a better product without the need for Gene modification or expensive farm feeding.This would have to be done on a world market basis.

  2. Japan pays premium for this garbage sad your taste buds are geared into mercury and red meat. Any fish that feeds of mackerel doesn't taste too sweet at all.

  3. Between the Japanese and the Chinese, who overuse GMO's and cause most of the damage to the sea. Along with whaling. You tell me who needs the be put down? You got it. MacArthur was right.

  4. Farm raised SUUUUCKS!! If a cancer patient can’t eat that but can eat wild..that tells you something. It doesn’t taste the same as wild as far as any I’ve seen. BUT if you use the natural water and just contain them and control the process..that’s the only way it will taste right. Shrimp and other farm raised fish are raised in terrible conditions. They pump them full of antibiotics. They shouldn’t have to worry HERE. These fish are so sensitive to controlled conditions, so it FORCES them to raise them in a healthy environment. It should taste just as good as wild caught fish. I always wondered why others don’t do that with shrimp and other fish like Tilapia, and Catfish.They are horrible farm raised. No taste and they chew and look as if they can NEVER FULLY COOk RIGHT. More rubbery than anything with no taste! That’s exactly what farm raised is like.

  5. Let the Japanese eat the farm raised crap – save pacific Fukushima polluted tuna for the rest of us

  6. Feeding the tuna man made products that where the problems will come in they will be feeding the tuna something that will kill you over time when you eat the meat

  7. Haven't they learned anything from the problems of the salmon farming industry? More disease and polluting of the seas ecosystem around Japan. I'd be worried about the radiation contamination of pacific fisheries too from the Fucoshima disaster. I'll bet governments will downplay this for fear of the fishing industry collapse. Better to let people die slowly from radiation poisoning than have angry fisherman at your door now.

  8. The problem is not over fishing. It's over population of humans.. the Caribbean is over run with evasive lion fish. There is a demand for lion fish they are good eating..

  9. What a surprise the fish wanna eat normal ole fish parts and not mush mush fish poop pellets…………………..would you wanna eat mush mush people pellets for dinner every damn day?? Just feed them some damn normal diet and charge more

  10. The earth is over populated. The oceans are being depleted with factory ships working faster each day. Toxic waste is destroying the ocean floor and all vegetation below these fish pens. How far is too far?

  11. still looking for a fish farm setup to make its own fish food….using fish meal from ocean trollers turns this into a net negative activity.


  13. but this is not a fish farm. this is a partitioned part of the ocean. this means that all the shit that goes into this fish pond is released into nature and may destroy the natural fish around these pond. eating fish is now a bad thing due to them being poluted along with the rain, sea with plastic particles.

  14. Why am I not surprised to see the Japanese using most of the resources of the Pacific?
    They haven't changed much since the 30-40's.

  15. How about releasing the tuna when they are young into the wild? IF they can boost the amount of Tuna that a born in the wild the number of tuna will concurrently rise. If they really want to ram up Tuna numbers all they would need to do is cut back on their tuna consumption by 1/2 for a few years while releasing a mass of tuna babies into the wild for a period of 3-5 years. After that, the tuna could be harvested to their heart's content as long as they keep a steady stream of tuna babies flowing into the wild

  16. Over-fishing is a massive problem but farming fish is a lot harder than farming pigs, cows, or chicken, meats that we eat WAY more than fish. This is because you can do absolutely unethical things to these land animals, in order to maximize yield, as long as they survive long enough to be butchered. Fish; however, have much harder time surviving if you do unethical things to them.

    Although, the issue of land should theoretically be less of an issue with fishes since humans don't live in or on water.

  17. Japanese are a burden on the ocean. They over fished their waters and now our waters.
    They kill whales and dolphins.

  18. Another great example how the free market solved a problem: a state owned research group found a solution, gouvernement financed big scale development and corporations get rich employing it. Wonderful!

  19. Bluefin tuna, whales and other aquatic life. Thank you, Japan for screwing over animal population so much it’s endangered.

  20. This is small time shit, those huge boats casting nets 20 miles wide are the mfers screwing up the oceans, I would love to see a 2 year ban on large net fishing… we should go back to line and hook

  21. yah no the real solution is stop eating them for a year or two till there numbers mass multiply, go vegan swap back and forth with eating habits. simple simon stratigy. some foods are like a drug ediction china should even stop eating there pet cats, and cut down on eating monkey brains for desert.

  22. Japanese need to educate themselves
    About what they are doing to destroy marine life species by eating them.the need to change their ways is now !


  24. How far from Fukushima is this farm?? I thought the waters around Japan were still radioactive since the accident.

  25. Creating farms like this is genius! Countries all across the planet should do this to allow ocean born fish to repopulate and then after a population growth has been achieved then create a controlled schedule for fishing in the ocean to prevent over fishing and to control the population growth

  26. Farmed fish always taste like crap compared to wild. Tuna swim at high speeds, requiring large unrestrained space. Without effort to catch live food, these must taste foul. But if you fake the taste then you're just eating additives and not wholesome foods. Do the world a favor and incubate to release to the wilds or be faking respect for life.

  27. The companys makeing a profit from bluefin should be raising and restocking the ocean. come on people hold people accountable. This can be done by a tax or by forcing them to belong to a group that will do this replenishment.

  28. These farmers can not be stripping the oceans Bluefine population to mix up as feed. this has become a problem for all other fish farming thats why they need to be sent back to the ocean.

  29. Why not raise fry to breeding age and release into the wild to repair the damage done to the pacific Japan constantly does?

  30. Genetically modified Tuna. You gotta love it….just like Monsanto and Conagra. It TASTES like tuna, trust us; it's GREAT! Don't get me started on the affect Fukushima has had on WORLD-WIDE fish quality/numbers etc.

  31. I am sure there is not Bluefin in their sea because they keep on showing as yellowfin while talking of bluefin…….. ……

  32. I am all for aquaculture. My only concern is the impact on the environment, e.g. dead zones, due to pollution created by fish feces and uneaten feed. I hope they are finding ways to mitigate any potential harm.

  33. Bad idea. Look at what the fish farms have done to the Pacific Northwest salmon stocks. Japan, you are inviting genetic disaster among the fish. All you will end up doing is devolving the tuna by eradicating genetic diversity.

  34. How about not fucking around with our food supply and eat something else!!! Holy fuck!!! People are so fucking greedy and selfish! Stop eating the fish so they can multiply naturally.
