We prove the existence and uniqueness of strong solution to the stochastic Leray- equations under appropriate conditions on the data. This is achieved by means of
the Galerkin approximation scheme. We also study the asymptotic behaviour of the strong
solution as alpha goes to zero. We show that a sequence of strong solutions converges
in appropriate topologies to weak solutions of the 3D stochastic Navier-Stokes equations.
