In this review, the authors briefly describe the nature and status of the main inshore marine fisheries of Solomon Islands. In virtually all cases, quantitative data on stock sizes are lacking and this article concentrates on outlining the size and extent of the resources, their current and projected uses and the existing controls on their exploitation.

This contribution briefly reviews the various forms of overfishing, with emphasis on their implications for tropical coastal fisheries, e.g. the coral reef fisheries of the South Pacific. Addressed are : growth overfishing and its relationship to the study of growth and mortality of fish, and of gear characteristics; recruitment overfishing and its links with parental biomasses, as well as "biological" and ecosystem ovefishing.
