Japan’s biggest retailer, Aeon Co,. on Thursday began selling farm-raised bluefin tuna at some of its supermarkets in Tokyo, expecting growing demand for the product after overfishing put the species at risk in the Pacific.

Over about two months, Aeon plans to sell fillets from 3,500 tuna under its private brand at about 2,000 group outlets in Japan, including its Daiei and MaxValu stores.
