Description - Capturing Wealth from Tuna by Kate Barclay
Western and Central Pacific Ocean is home to the largest tuna fishery in the
world - around half of the world's tuna supply - and is a vital economic
resource for Pacific island countries.
The potential of the Pacific tuna fishery to contribute to economic
development in the Pacific island countries is enormous, but will require a
cooperative regional strategy to maximise access fees from distant water
fishing nations, as well as targeted domestic policy and legislation to
encourage local fishing industries. Together with the importance of acting
strategically with regard to such a variable resource, the lesson of
fisheries management globally is that it is most effective when it takes into
consideration social, cultural and political contexts.
Based on an extensive study of six Pacific island states, Capturing Wealth
from Tuna maps out the aspirations and limitations of six Pacific island
countries and proposes strategies for capturing more wealth from this
resource in a sustainable and socially equitable manner.
