Sustainability around the world: Oceania

Sustainability Around The World: Oceania

By Gillian Phair

The Pacific Possible is a new report from the World Bank which expects a shift towards sustainable tuna fishing management can help create $344 million a year and up to 15,000 jobs by 2040 for pacific island nations. Five key policies will help this transition, they are: making fishing practices and catch limits efficient, creating better regional interaction, including coastal communities in fishery planning, improving access and harvest rights for fleets and improving the local skill base in the workforce

Where usually ‘business as usual’ fishing practices waste valuable fish stocks and contribute to stresses in our overburdened food system, it is encouraging to see that sustainable industry management could bring about huge economic opportunities.
