The Global Environment Facility has approved a five year,

US$11 million project to assist Pacific island states to strengthen their national fisheries laws.

The Director of the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency Feleti Teo says the funding means a new Oceanic Fisheries Management Project will be able to start this year.

The project will act on information provided by monitoring work on the impact of fishing.
