Fisheries agency catches a big one

Fisheries in the Pacific looks robust with a US$12 million agreement signed between New Zealand and the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency.

“Keeping the region’s tuna resources healthy is a priority,” New Zealand High Commissioner to the Solomon Islands Georgina Roberts said.

She said New Zealand recognised the important contribution the agency made to Pacific’s development.

The agreement, a five-year arrangement, would be used to support the sustainable management of the region’s fisheries.

Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency director-general Dr Manu Tupou-Roosen said New Zealand had always played a valuable role for the agency.

“We thank the New Zealand government for its steadfast support,” he said.
