    1971
    Also available in:

    The following report is based upon interviews with government and fishery officials and visits to sites of turtle activity such as nesting grounds, feeding areas, market places, turtle fisherman camps, etc. In 1969, the South Pacific Commission (SPC) and the South Pacific Islands Fisheries Development Agency (SPIFDA) sent the Marine Turtle Questionnaires to Fishery Departments in the South and Southwest Pacific and the few replies provided some background information on turtle resources. In most places the respondents to the Questionnaires were interviewed by the author and the information verified the pertinent data are included in this report.

    Aspects of sea safety in the fisheries of Pacific Island countries 2003

    No results found.

    In early 2003 FAO undertook a survey of fisheries-related sea safety in the Pacific Islands region. The objective of the work was to consolidate the experience gained by selected countries in safety at sea with the view of improving ongoing and future activities in the region. The countries directly surveyed in the present study were Tuvalu, Tonga, Samoa, Fiji, and Kiribati. Five main topics were covered: the relation of fisheries management to sea safety, safety programs, data recording, legisl ation, and boat building and vessel design. The major regional fisheries-oriented sea safety initiatives in the Pacific Islands have been the 1991 FAO survey and the more recent work of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community.The concept of including sea safety as a specific objective of fisheries management is not common in the countries covered by the survey. In several countries, safety appears to be considered when formulating management interventions, but the idea that saving lives of fish ers could be one of the stated objectives of government management intervention does not occur in the five countries. To ensure that sea safety is included in fisheries management, a number of measures are suggested.
