View the PDF document Deep bottom fishing project - Report 8: Maiana Kiribati
Author(s): Tinga, R., Ueantabo, N.
Place: Tarawa (Kiribati)
Date: 1991
Notes: In May, 1980 SPC Masterfisherman P. Taumaia, visited the island and conducted for the first time (in collaboration with Fisheries Division) deep bottom fishing activities. His average catch rate was reported to be 10.5kg/reel-hr. In comparision with the 11.6kg/reel-hr obtained from our visit (CPUEs are for all species including sharks), it may well support the assumption that the stocks of deep bottom fishes along the deep reef slopes od Maiana have to date remained untapped as confirmed by the increase in CPUE of 1.1kg/ree-hr over the 1980 figure. This increase further establishes the assumption that that biomass of the virgin stock of this resource may have slightly increased by certain proportions since 1980.

View the PDF document Deep bottom fishing project, report no. 10: Abaiang, Kiribati
Author(s): Tinga, R.
Publisher: Kiribati
Place: Tarawa (Kiribati)
Date: December 1991
Notes: In May, 1984 the Fisheries Division under the supervision of SPC Masterfisherman P. Taumaia, conducted deep bottom fishing operations for the first time along the outer-reef slopes of selected areas at Abaiang. Log sheets reveal that the CPUE was estimated to be 2.8kg/reel-hr. In comparison with the present CPUE of 7.0kg/ree-hr, it is possible that the deep bottom fish resource have a high potential for exploitation. Care should, however, be exercised to maintain a modest level of fishing effort if stocks should not be allowed to decrease, in which case an in-depth analysis should be made to determine the value of maximum sustainable yield for this resource.

View the PDF document Report of a Blue coral survey conducted at Betio, 18th - 20th June 1990
Author(s): Kamatie, M., Arabua, I., Ueantabo, K., Tebaobao, T.
Publisher: Fisheries Division, Ministry of Natural Resources
Place: Tarawa (Kiribati)
Date: 1990
Notes: The Fisheries division of the Ministry of Natural Resource development is mainly responsible with the conservation and proper management of renewal marine resources of the Republic of Kiribati. Included in these renewable resources is the blue coral which is currently harvested for export purpose by local skin divers
ASFA Keywords: Coral farming, Blue coral surveys, Fisheries development
Abstract: The survey for blue corals, Helipora coerules, which involved intensive scanning and Scuba diving, was carried out for three days. It was found that the estimated relative abundance of blue corals in terms of percentage per scanned area was fairly low in the area designated to coral divers (<10%), while the ocean side yields a higher estimate (>60%). It is therefore recommended that the harvesting of blue corals in this designated area should be totally banned. However pulse fishing by local coral skin divers could either be shifted to other nearby outer islands, or to mainly concentrate their coral harvest on the ocean side of Betio, where unexploited stock is currently abundant.

View the PDF document Rural fisheries in Kiribati: frame surveys of Abemama, Kuria and north Tarawa
Author(s): Marriott, S. P.
Publisher: Fisheries Division, Ministry of Natural Resource Development
Place: Tarawa (Kiribati)
Date: 1984
Notes: Frame surveys of Albemama, Kuira and North Tarawa
ASFA Keywords: Fishery surveys, Fishery development, Fishery data
Abstract: Frame surveys were made of three rural areas - Abemama, Kuria and North Tarawa. The results indicated that the island catches were sufficient to sustain their populations and to provide adequate protein requirements, although individual variations in the probable per capita fish consumption were noted. A discussion of the individual subjects development profiles indicated the probable areas for development. It was noted that the projects already started by the Fisheries Division matched the specific development targets that the surveys indicated were appropriate.
