By Antoine Teitelbaum and Alex Meloty


In November 2006, SPC's Aquaculture Advisor and Aquaculture Officer (mariculture) visited the Solomon Islands. The main objective of the mission was to program joint activities (particularly mariculture based) with the new Aquaculture Division of the Department of Fisheries and Marine Resources (DFMR). Alex Meloty, the new Head of Aquaculture was recently appointed after Gideon Tiroba left the Department for the EU-funded seaweed project, as project manager.



Other objectives of this visit included scoping the ongoing aquaculture activities by industry, governments and NGOs, and to undertake a review of the EU-funded seaweed project that SPC has been following since its start in 2002.
