Abstract

Health of two farmed species of tuna was evaluated in farm surveys in Australia, Croatia and Spain. The results were discussed at tuna health workshop during EAFP 12th International Conference. While a wide range of parasites was found, few problems occurred during the surveys. The information obtained will be useful for future monitoring and research on health of farmed tuna.
