An Australian company said on Tuesday it had developed the first artificial breeding plan for the endangered southern bluefin tuna, in high demand for sashimi and sushi.

According to a 2006 report by Australian, New Zealand, South Korean and Japanese officials, southern bluefin tuna catches are unsustainable with an even chance that all fish capable of laying eggs will be gone by 2030 if current catch levels continue.

Clean Seas Tuna said the successful collection of captive southern bluefin tuna sperm and eggs at its base in South Australia state could pave the way to year-round production of the fish.

The next step in commercialising the breakthrough would be to produce baby fish from the stored sperm and eggs, said Clean Seas Chairman Hagen Stehr.
