Abstract: The hosting of regional participants, representing ten countries from around the Pacific in the remote village of Vitawa, for the first ever Milkfish Farming Workshop to be held in Fiji, marks a milestone achievement. 

The broad aim of this Workshop was to provide participatory learning opportunities in practical techniques for low-cost aquaculture of milkfish Chanos chanos (yawa in Fijian) by people who are currently, or will soon be, engaged in low-cost milkfish farming projects in the Pacific. 

The specific objectives were to:

1.     understand the background of the Vitawa Pilot Project

2.     know about Milkfish biology 

3.     learn how to produce Milkfish

4.     learn lessons about community based fish farming
