Japanese companies plot biggest fully farmed tuna project yet

Efforts are afoot to feed Japan's appetite for tuna in a sustainable manner.

TOKYO -- Fisheries giant Kyokuyo and Nippon Formula Feed aim to begin shipments in 2017 of farmed bluefin tuna hatched in captivity, helping to provide stores and eateries with a stable supply amid tighter restrictions on tuna catches.

     Together, they aim to ship about 200 tons a year -- the most ambitious project yet by any Japanese fish-farming company.
