Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems

What is FAME?

FAME (SPC Division of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems) main's work is to provide the 22 SPC's member countries and territories with the information they need to make informed decisions on the management and development of their aquatic resources, and help to provide the tools and strengthen the capacity needed to implement these decisions.


FAME is composed of two programmes: the Oceanic Fisheries Programme and the Coastal Fisheries Programme.


SPCs vision for the region is a secure and prosperous Pacific Community whose people are educated and healthy and manage their resources in a sustainable way. While FAMEs goal mainly focuses on the sustainable management of marine resources, we don't neglect the opportunities that these provide to improve education, health and prosperity.
