Summary

The fish population in Fiji is in a critical condition, population numbers as well as the diversity of species has suffered intensely over the past 5 years. In addition to marine life suffering, so are habitats and this illegal, over-exerted trade is contributing heavily to environmental degradation in Fiji. Our project is focused on providing the training, resources and equipment for local community members to continue monitoring and preserving the habitats and reducing the illegal trade

Challenge

The reefs are the main source of protein for the communities that live on the island & therefor are under a great deal of fishing pressure and prone to habitat destruction. To ensure that there are fishing stocks for future generations, the local community understand that they must protect certain areas of the reef. To act as a habitat for reef creatures to thrive in, a protected area must fulfil certain criteria, be closed to fishing and be used in a non-destructive manner.

Solution

Working with the local authorities and communities this project engages the local communities around the Fijian Islands and neighbouring countries to identify critically low areas of the fish population in the ocean and train local people to assist with data collection. Alongside this training and development program to up-skill the local community, we will also be running an outreach program with local partners to build awareness, understanding and help re-train local fisherman.
