Marine Conservation Activities for Small-scale Fisheries in Tairo Bay, Solomon Islands

Marine Conservation Activities for Small-scale Fisheries in Tairo Bay, Solomon Islands

For years, IC Net has been working in the Solomon Islands to assist in the resources management and livelihood improvement of its community members in the fisheries sector. The Tairo Bay community, Guadalcanal, a program called the Community-based Resource Management (CBRM) is underway since 2017 with the cooperation of the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources (MFMR). The community organized a Tiaro Marine Conservation Committee to strengthen conservation activities for marine resources in/around the bay areas.

The Conservation Committee often
records fish catch from the outside of a
management area, when local people bring
their fish to a solar freezer house. We check
the weight and the amount of fish by
species.

IC Net’s Senior Expert Mr. Iinuma has been providing technical assistance to the community and has launched several pilot programs that involve community-based life skills improvement and resources management. The Solomon Islands CBRM project has been IC Net’s strength as it has been providing technical assistance to Vanuatu, a neighboring country for years.
