Assessing Tropical Marine Invertebrates: a Manual for Pacific Island Resource Managers


Pakoa, K and Friedman, K and Moore, B and Tardy, E and Bertram, I, Assessing Tropical Marine Invertebrates: a Manual for Pacific Island Resource Managers, Secretariat of the Pacific Community, New Caledonia, pp. 119. ISBN 978-982-00-0712-3 (2014) [Authored Other Book]


Although the Pacific Islands region is relatively free from the pressures of large-scale industrialised exploitation, marine biodiversity and species of importance for food security or commercialisation are under pressure from a combination of subsistence harvesting (where coastal populations are high), commercial fishing activity and coastal development. Although there are few documented cases of widespread collapses, a lack of understanding of the status of resources and the health of coastal systems is a recognised shortfall in the ability to manage stocks over time. Managing resources and habitat by way of day-to-day perceptions suffers from a constant shift in understanding with changing generations.
