      Introduction. The reproductive biology of Atlantic bluefin tuna (ABFT; Thunnus thynnus, L. ) remains poorly understood despite the high economic value of this fishery and its exploitation throughout the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean uncertainties directly affect our understanding of the recruitment and productivity of the stock and could result in inefficient management of.   In the group assessed the stock status of western Atlantic bluefin tuna.

      Atlantic bluefin tuna is one of the high value aquaculture species. From the middle of the s, aquaculture of Atlantic bluefin tuna was developed primarily around so-called “fattening” whereby a school of tuna are caught by purse seine fishing vessels, transferred into transport cages and towed from the capture areas to the fattening facilities.   1. Introduction. Atlantic bluefin tuna, Thunnus thynnus (Linnaeus, ), is a highly migratory species able to tolerate wide ranges of environmental conditions (Arrizabalaga et al., ) in tropical and temperate waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean earliest scientific reference on that species comes from Aristotle in his treatise History of Animals, written in B.C.
