Fish Talk: Making tuna fisheries management 'pop' with PROP

The t-shirts and branding launched by NORMA FSM in Pohnpei during the closing of the 2016 National Fisheries Seminar says it all: Stepping up Fisheries in FSM is the renewed focus of a USD5.5m injection to 2020, thanks to the World Banks Pacific Regional Oceanscape Project. The PROP project is essentially a management program for securing the best economic benefits from sustainable coastal and offshore fisheries, for four participating member nations of the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency, FFA. FSM State officials and leaders from across FSM as well as the key national stakeholders for the PROP working with NORMA- Resources and Development, Health and Social Affairs, Justice, and Finance and Admin, were part of the branding launch aimed at stepping up the messaging around the activities planned at helping FSM meet its fisheries aspirations for tuna and coastal fisheries.
