Fish harvesting

Improving Food Security with Fish Aggregating Devices

In Solomon Islands, as well as in many other Pacific Island Countries and Territories, fish is a major source of protein, especially for rural and coastal people. However, growing populations combined with the effects of climate change and increased fishing pressure on inshore reef fisheries means the gap between fish demand and supply is increasing. If steps are not taken to alleviate this situation, it is predicted that a number of these countries and territories will be unable to meet their nutritional needs from reef fisheries by 2030 (Bell et al. 2009).
