Spatial–temporal pattern of bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus L. 1758) gonad maturation across the Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
G gonadal development in BFT correlates well with higher sea surface temperatures, which reflects a situation in which the eastern Mediterranean basin may function as a habitat for young BFT, until they gain a larger MB and are able to move to the Atlantic Ocean. Expand
Further evidence of spawning of bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus L., 1758) and the tuna species (Auxis rochei Ris., 1810, Euthynnus alletteratus Raf., 1810) in the eastern Mediterranean Sea: preliminary
TLDR
The concentration of bluefin tuna larvae was highest in the Bay of Mersin, and the collected larvae in this area were composed mainly of 5–9 mm size specimens. Expand
Diet composition of bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus L. 1758) in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, Turkey
TLDR
New information on the diet composition of T. thynnus in the eastern Mediterranean Sea is revealed and the findings indicate that, depending on the abundance of the different prey species in the habitat, the dominant prey species can be distinctive. Expand

,SUMMARY Although there have been several studies of the migratory movements of Atlantic bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus, L.) between the Western and Eastern Atlantic, the two-stock hypothesis remainsExpand
Habitat suitability of the Atlantic bluefin tuna by size class: An ecological niche approach
An ecological niche modelling (ENM) approach was used to predict the potential feeding and spawning habitats of small (5-25kg, only feeding) and large (> 25kg) Atlantic bluefin tuna (ABFT), ThunnusExpand
