Japan sets the example for distant water fishing nations in Pacific: FFA

FFA HQ, Honiara, SOLOMON ISLANDS. – Partnership, consultation and support between the Japan Fisheries agency and the FFA continue to set a positive example to other distant water fishing nations that have vessels licensed to fish in Pacific waters. A just-ended Japan Fisheries-FFA consultation at the FFA’s Honiara-based headquarters provided room for open sharing on key issues and helped clarify new developments around vessel registration, licensing and monitoring in the Western and Central Pacific Fishery, which includes the EEZs of FFA members.
