Lau Lagoon is the largest seagrass area in Solomon Islands. Dugong, fish and people depend on the seagrass. Support the efforts to save the lagoon: (1) protect dugongs, (2) respect fishing closures, (3) refrain from using trammel nets, (4) safeguard fish spawning aggregations, and (5) properly dispose plastic waste.
Small-scale fishers are often believed to receive marginal earnings for seafood relative to other value- chain actors but proportionate incomes across different traded species are rarely compared. This study compares value chains for 15 species of sea cucumbers between Fiji and Kiribati using data collected on sale prices of dried products (bêche-de-mer) from fishers to middlemen and exporters, export prices and market retail prices in China.
Adaptive co-management approaches have been at the core of attempts to apply resilience principles to small-scale fisheries. Although recommendations of what should be done to promote resilience are commonplace, insights from practice are rare.
