The Fisheries Ministry is currently working on developing the first ever National Fisheries Policy.

Fisheries Minister Semi Koroilavesau told parliament, the policy will improve the fisheries sector.

“Items such as fisheries management, illegal unregulated and unreported fishing, marine pollution, poaching and lack of scientific data are some of the initiatives that are being dealt with through line agencies across Fiji. With the findings collected through collaboration and consultation the ministry is working to further develop high risk areas worth protecting.”

Koroilavesau adds that they have put in place total bans, seasonal closures and size limits to ensure the sustainability of the country’s marine resources.
