2008/711 Addressing key aquatic animal health issues limiting production of Australian Yellowtail Kingfish and hatchery-reared Southern Bluefin Tuna Industries

This project comprised of an applied approach to addressing a diverse range of aquatic animal health related issues of relevance to the nascent Australian Yellowtail Kingfish industry, and to the newly instigated production of hatchery reared Southern Bluefin Tuna.  Read More

2008/712 Second Generation Tuna Feeds

Current production of Southern Bluefin Tuna (SBT) involves ranching wild-caught sub-adult SBT and ‘fattening’ them in culture using a range of baitfish. This study investigated the viability of a manufactured feed as an alternative to baitfish.  Read More

2008/745 The advancement of reproductive development in Southern Bluefin Tuna using hormonal manipulations of Kisspeptin, the gatekeeper of puberty

The objective of this research project was to advance reproductive maturation in Southern Bluefin Tuna (SBT), by understanding the role of the kisspeptin system in regulating puberty, using as a model, the Yellowtail Kingfish (YTK).  Read More

2008/780 Towards the Captive Breeding of Southern Buefin Tuna

This PhD thesis titled ‘Towards the captive breeding of the Southern Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus maccoyii)’ was completed by Erin Bubner in fulfillment of the requirements of the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Flinders University in August 2011.  Read More

2009/726 Southern Bluefin Tuna larval/juvenile rearing

This research looked at the entire SBT hatchery “life cycle” from obtaining a supply of good quality, fertilized eggs through to general survival requirements to enable SBT to reach adulthood.  Read More

2011/740 Addressing causes of early mortality in hatchery produced Southern Bluefin Tuna larvae

This project aimed to address some of the key larval mortality and quality issues experienced in finfish hatcheries.  Read More

2013/710 Securing the future of SBT propagation R&D

This project aimed to provide short-term maintenance costs for SBT broodstock and form an SBT propagation consortium to secure funding after this period and rebuild the SBT propagation program. This project also aimed to spawn the SBT broodstock to further research activities and prepare a synopsis of SBT broodstock maintenance and spawning regimes that have been conducted under the CRC.  Read More

2013/737 Propagation of South Bluefin Tuna - Addressing constraints to larval rearing

This project developed an appropriate research strategy to address the need for CST to improve survival of SBT larvae during the period between 10-20 days post hatching. This strategy was based upon past findings and best available information and expertise. The research strategy developed will prioritise issues to be addressed and propose solutions to be investigated to improve SBT larval rearing methods to enhance the prospects for increased survival and growth of SBT past 20 days post hatch.  Read More
