Sharks’ potential reliance on grouper spawning aggregations for sustenance and how this may impact fisheries and marine protected areas management form the focus of our first project in Pohnpei, the capital state of the FSM. We are also investigating the spatio-temporal behaviour of coastal manta rays around the islands and their capture vulnerabilities to the tuna-purse seine fisheries.

Accomplishments

  • Creation of a physical market by fishers to sell and distribute more sustainably sourced seafood and compliance with fisheries regulations
