In this week's Discovery Sue Broom investigates the science behind tuna aquaculture.

Explorations in the world of science.

This week the Atlantic bluefin tuna could be banned from international trade at a CITES meeting in Dohar. Some scientists fear the tuna will become extinct because of overfishing.

Sue Broom meets researchers who are breeding the tuna from eggs in captivity and asks if this is a sustainable way to produce food and help protect the wildstock.

Could new types of maize solve food shortages in Africa? Sue Broom investigates.

Explorations in the world of science.

Maize is a staple food in sub saharan Africa, eaten once or twice a day by many people, but lack of rain is an ever present threat. Last year the drought in Kenya meant the amount of maize produced fell dramatically and millions of people faced starvation.

A drought resistant maize is needed urgently. Sue Broom travels to Kenya and Mozambique to investigate a new research project that is combining conventional crop breeding with genetically modified crops.
