  • Giant clam     

    Solomon Islands was one of the important locations in the Pacific where pioneering work on giant clam farming was carried out, mostly by the WorldFish Center.

    By 1998 giant clams were being farmed by 50 village based farms, serviced by a central hatchery. This activity was discountinued as a result of the ethnic crisis.

    There remains a high level of interest to revive giant clam farming for the aquarium export trade.
