The bluefin tuna is one of the most popular and expensive fish on the market, if not the most popular and expensive. Because of that, it doesn’t come as any surprise that the bluefin tuna is heavily overfished, which negatively affects their populations. This negative impact can alter their marine ecosystem and causes prices to go up as they become more difficult to find.

Farm raised fish is nothing new, but farm-raised bluefin tuna isn’t something most people think would be possible due to their size and the amount of room they need to move around.
It took a while, but after 32 years, a research team successfully farm-raised bluefin tuna from fertilized eggs to full-grown fish in 2002. It hasn’t been an easy process to refine, mostly because getting the tuna to eat fish feed over actual fish proved difficult to figure out.
