Abstract or Summary
  • Feasible sustainable fisheries development is dependent on a range of political, social, economic and ecological factors, but to date most debate informing fisheries management and fisheries development policy in the Pacific has tended to address only one or two of these factors in isolation from the others. For example, Pacific Islanders’ aspirations for development of tuna industries using their tuna resources have often influenced by resource nationalism and a desire to translate Islanders’ identification with the sea into commercial fisheries success, whereas economic analyses tend to discount these kinds of factors. Governance constitutes a third strand in this debate. Not governance narrowly defined as the presence or absence of corruption, but broader questions about the development, implementation and effectiveness of policies in fisheries resource management in the particular environment of small island states in the Pacific. The aim of this paper is to analyse aspiration discourses together with economic feasibility and governance issues to consider what tuna industry development might look like if it took account of political, social, economic and ecological factors. The final section of the paper will look at the possibilities for this kind of development under the regime of the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission.
