At the end of farming cycle tuna fish reaches cca 60 kg, which is ensuring optimal weght/fat ratio for Japanese sushi and sashimi market.

Our fishing area Jabuka
Atlantic bluefin tuna comes to Mediterranean and Adriatic sea mostly because of feeding, since Adriatic is rich with small blue pelagic fish like sardines and anchovies. Tuna schools are mostly caught around island Jabuka, since high salinity, strong currents and exceptionally clean sea is rich with small pelagic fish. Registered live fish are transported by tug boats in towing cages to our farm Balabra where it is fed in controlled conditions to achieve quality requred for top sushi and sashimi.
