The SELFDOTT European project focuses on the controlled reproduction of the Atlantic bluefin tuna in captivity. It was launched in January 2008 and must end in 2011.
This project coordinated by Spain, gathers 8 different countries including one beyond European frontiers.
The production of several million viable eggs obtained in 2009, in a controlled environment, was the first stage of the work.
The other stages on hand are larval rearing and feeding.
