Atlantic Bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) is an emblematic large migratory species, commercially very valuable and with a complex history of exploitation.
A summary of this history can be found here (in French).
France is a major player in the international fisheries for this species and Ifremer has activities related to expertise (provision of an index of abundance, stock assessment) and research (spatial dynamics, link to the environment).
In our daily activity, both expertise and research fuel each other and this interaction serves to define scientific questions tackled through several projects.
