Fisheries ministers looking to uphold the Pacific reputation for sustainable management July 05,2017   |  Source: ABC

Fisheries ministers from across the Pacific are meeting on the Sunshine Coast in Australia to discuss the sustainable management of what is a multi-billion-dollar resource.

The 14th Forum Fisheries Committee Ministerial Meeting is focusing in particular on the tuna industry, with Pacific countries the source for half the annual international catch.

Australia's Assistant Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, Senator Anne Ruston, who is chairing the meeting, says the Pacific's reputation is at stake.
