dc.description.abstractAn experimental rearing experiment of bluefin tuna larvae was undertaken in the Spanish Oceanographic Institution (IEO) based in the aquaculture plant of Murcia that started June 24, 2013 when caged bluefin spawned naturally. Bluefin tuna eggs were transferred to rearing tanks and where hatched larvae were sampled regularly every 2 days till 15dph. After this period, larvae were sampled every 3 days till 37dph (Temperature range 22-26ºC). The standard length (SL) of larvae were measured after frozen and conserved deep-frozen in a -80ºC for undertaking posterior nitrogen (N) and carbon (C) stable isotope analysis. The results of the experiment showed very high initial values of δ15N and δ13C in the eggs and lecitotrophic larvae till 4dph, explaining a transgenerational transference of the heavy isotopes through maternal inheritance. After this time lapse, the stable isotope values declined progressively till 12dph and maintained this low level till 15dph. This period coincides with the notochord post-flexion development established at a mean SL of 6,7mm (±0,57) measured. Coinciding with this ontogenic stage, larvae were started to be fed with newly hatched larvae of aquaculture-bred gilt-head seabream whose δ15N and δ13C values were consequently enriched. This diet produced an increasing trend in the δ15N and δ13C values till 24dph reaching similar values of the initial developmental times. The results show that pre-flexion larvae of bluefin have high δ15N and δ13C signature as a result of their maternal transference. A similar decreasing pattern was also observed in field-based research on bluefin larvae which justified the need to carry out this rearing experiment. The data acquired in this experiment allows to formulate an estimate of the maternal δ15N and δ13C signatures from larvae between 3-6mm SL which opens research horizons in the estimation of maternal trophic qualities that may relate to larval growth and condition potentials.
