What We Do
Pacific Catalyst provides innovative, long-term policy guidance and training to fisheries managers, scientists, students, policymakers, community leaders and fishermen who work every day to sustain the priceless marine resources of the Pacific.
WE ARE HERE TO:
Provide economic analysis, research, and policy papers to enhance the value and performance of Pacific Island fisheries according to emerging needs and priorities;
Support learning and leadership development for the next generation of fisheries managers;
Help define and demonstrate the role of rights in the Pacific Islands by building a holistic understanding of how rights have been applied traditionally, and exploring options for how rights can help meet social, cultural, ecological and economic outcomes
Support and shape legislative and policy reforms to provide flexibility for innovative fisheries management solutions while ensuring that Pacific Island rights are formally recognized
