Author(s): Kamatie, M., Arabua, I., Ueantabo, K., Tebaobao, T.
Publisher: Fisheries Division, Ministry of Natural Resources
Place: Republic of 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: Corals; Coral farming
Country Collection: Kiribati
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.

Place: Tarawa (Kiribati)
Date: 1984
Notes: Frame surveys of Albemama, Kuira and North Tarawa
ASFA Keywords: Fishery surveys, Fishery development
Country Collection: Kiribati
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.
