The general objectives of the infrastructure are to provide the scientific community at national and international level, an open access, state-of- the art and unique facilities devoted to competitive ST research and technology transfer for bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) reproduction in captivity and juvenile production.


The specific objectives are:


  • To contribute to the sustainable production of Atlantic bluefin tuna through integrated aquaculture techniques independently of fisheries
  • To increase knowledge on the biology of Atlantic bluefin tuna for its application in better management of its fisheries, thus contributing to its sustainability
