PAPUA NEW GUINEA : WHERE, WHAT & WHY
• PNG is the largest Pacific Island Nation
• It is located just north of Australia
• Population of 6 million with 800 languages
• Largest untapped marine aquarium resource base in
the world
• New to the marine aquarium trade
• Developing Nation status and the center of intense
interest from natural resource industries
2
What makes PNG Different in the Trade
• Pristine Marine Environment
• Resource Abundance
• Close Proximity to the Resource
• Advantage of Resource Owner Participation
• Sustainable Development & Use of Resources
• Net-Caught only – NO Chemical or Destructive
Fishing Practices
• World-class Post-harvest Care for Products
• Organism Traceability
3
4
PNG SEASMART PROGRAM COMPONENTS
• Resource Assessment & Management (RAM)
• Management Area Planning (MAP)
• Fisher & Fishery Development (FFD)
• Mariculture, Aquaculture and Restoration (MAR)
• Export and Facility Development (EFD)
• Smart Business Development (SBD)
• TRADE Management System
• Traceability, ISO & MAC Certification
• Branding and Promotions
The SEASMART Program covers the following general areas of national
industry development from community and fisher owned Fishery Management
Areas (FMA) to export.
5
RESOURCE ASSESSMENT & MANAGEMENT
6
Basics of our RAM System:
• Fisheries-based Assessment (Catch Records)
• Non-fisheries-based assessment (Underwater
Surveys)
• Codified RAM requirements and the Development of
a RAM Manual
Basic RAM Survey Techniques
2.5m
2.5m
Belt transect
Substrate Surveyor
Vertebrate Surveyor
Invertebrate Surveyor
Manta Tow & Belt Transects
8
PNG Marine Aquarium TAC Model
• FiSAT II = is a program package
developed mainly for the analysis of
length-frequency data, but also
enables related analyses, of size-at-
age, catch-at-age, selection and other
analyses.
Management Area Planning (MAP)
• MAP is a process that enjoins the participation of different
stakeholders in the development of a resource management
plan.
• A Management Area Plan (MAP) document incorporates
management principles, programs, strategies, and activities to
get to a desired state/vision based on existing resources and
resource users, ecosystem physical characteristics, and
carrying capacity.
(The how ,what, where, when, and who of the management
of a Fishery Management Area (FMA)
10
Fisher & Fishery Development
Responsibilities of the FFD Division
• Training new Fishery Management Area fishers in:
• Marine aquarium collection best practices including
sustainable collection techniques, post harvest
holding and handling, and rotational access
• Introduction of fishing gear emphasizing animal and
fisher safety, and collection efficiency
• Introduction and use of in-sea holding systems: sea
cages, flow through buckets and jars, etc.
12
Mariculture, Aquaculture, and Restoration
• Establishing coral mariculture operations in coastal
village waters
• Training/Employing local villagers in coral
propagation and mariculture techniques
• Providing sustainably cultured corals to the aquarium
trade
• Utilizing 30% of all maricultured coral frags in local
reef restoration projects
– Frags are to be planted onto damaged reef areas
13
14
TRADE
Key aspects of TRADE traceability are:
• Tracing organisms to a Fishery Management Area (FMA) and their qualified fishers;
• Tracking organism movement through the market chain; and
• Recording and reporting organism mortality with auto response requirements at each
link of the chain.
15
THE PAPUA NEW GUINEA DIFFERENCE
• 100% Net Caught w/ Traceability Proofing
• No Chemical Use or Destructive Fishing
Practices
• Extremely Short Market Chain
• Superior Post Harvest Handling
• Equitable Ownership and Management
• New Species, Color Morphs in Abundance
