The Governments of Japan and Solomon Islands have formalized a Grant Aid Agreement to support fisheries development programmes with the signing of documents in Honiara on Friday last week.

Honiara 13 June 2019: There is need for a change in attitude if we ever going to tackle the issue of plastic waste, this is the message that rang out loudly as staff of the Ministry of Fisheries led a clean-up campaign on Saturday in Honiara.

The Western and Central Pacific Ocean holds the world’s largest tuna fishery with a total catch of more than 2.5 million tons a year. The target species (albacore, skipjack, bigeye and yellowfin) are being managed at sustainable levels and there is no overfishing occurring for these stocks. This is in stark contrast to all other oceans.

The Community Based Resource Management (CBRM) Section in the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources is organising a Poster and Essay Competition for students to mark the World Oceans Day which will be celebrated in June this year.

The Ministry of Fisheries last Thursday presented 'Chuppu' to five stakeholders at Aruligo West Guadalcanal. Chupu presentation is a widely practiced custom on Guadalcanal which still holds a lot of practical and cultural significance to the people on the island.
