Gender issues in Pacific Islands fisheries Submitted by Anonymous | 1 / Jan / 2006
This report examines national, regional and international articles, documents, field reports and books written on women in development, gender in development, women in fisheries, and the assessment, management and development of Pacific Islands tuna fisheries.
Studies show that men and women are both involved in all aspects of the tuna industry with most women found in the processing (small scale and commercial) and marketing for the domestic market. Most men are found in the capture and commercial marketing areas.
More information about the positive and negative impacts of fisheries on women and suggested actions to improve gender equity are found in the two parts of the report, downloadable below.
