Scarce tuna species re-emerges in Fiji waters
5:39 pm GMT+12, 12/06/2018, Fiji

 A particular tuna species that was regarded as scarce and almost extinct in Fiji waters has now re-emerged.
 
Fisheries Minister Semi Koroilavesau highlighted this during the Tuna consultation he attended in Indonesia earlier this month with experts from the tuna industry.
 
Koroilavesau has confirmed that Fiji has a low production of tuna and due to the change in weather pattern and it was a surprise to find this particular species once again thriving in our waters.
 
“We know that the tuna will move further south. This will benefit Fiji which will improve out stock that is available to Fiji for fishing vessel to catch and provide the raw materials for Levuka and also value added food processing with the tuna industry.”
 
Issues regarding climate change, tuna stock and control and issues relating to Unreported Unregulated fishing in regards to Tuna were part discussions during the conference.
