Early-life History Group
The Early-life History Group is one of the two groups under the Biology Program is designed to increase the available knowledge of the life-history and behavior of tunas, tuna like-species, and other associated species in the EPO. The other group under the program is the Life-History and Behavior Group.

The research of the Early Life-History Group is mainly conducted at the Achotines Laboratory and includes the following activities (described in detail in Document SAC-11-14):
  1. Field and laboratory experiments to investigate the key environmental and biological factors of the early life history of the tuna that affect the recruitment of young fish to the exploitable population.
  2. Develop tools to forecast recruitment of young tuna to the exploitable population.
