As part of its awareness campaign to support the opening of the Funafuti Reef Fisheries Stewardship Plan (FRFSP) the Coastal Section of the Tuvalu Fisheries Department developed a series of posters, banners and a water-proof, sun-proof sticker to highlight some aspects of the new plan.
The materials were printed and displayed at the recent First Regional Technical Meeting on Coastal Fisheries (RTMCF) in Noumea in November, and the opening of the FRFSP on December 14.
The main purpose of the materials was to give Tuvaluans an easy reference to the new plan, provide a sticker for fishers to use so they could avoid catching fishes that are too small to allow them to breed, and to make a clear link between fisheries and food and nutrition security.
The new plan will be implemented from early 2018. Watch this space for more information and new materials.
