  • Larval fish      

    solomon_pueruli_b1Larval fish rearing trials are being conducted by the WorldFish Center at Nuse Tupe.

    Traps located at the reef crest are used to capture larvae, which are reared in floating enclosures. The project has successfully raised marine species which have been exported for the aquarium trade.

    The project plans to expand this method to village based farms. One species of particular interest is the ornamental shrimps.
