DevFish2 brochure

brochure_photoThe Pacific Ocean is a vast resource teeming with marine life, including one of the most lucrative – tuna. However, many Pacific Island countries are yet to realize the full value of sustainable development of their tuna.


Pacific Island countries caught around $600 million worth of tuna while foreign fishing fleets caught $2 billion in 2008. Less than 10 % of tuna is processed locally in the region reducing the potential value of tuna caught in the region.


How can we change this? See DevFish2 brochure.
