Abstract: This report summarises the small-scale local control measures implemented by the Ministry of Marine Resources, in response to large numbers of adult crown-of-thorns starfish (Acanthaster planci; known locally as Taramea) on the outer reef of Rarotonga, Cook Islands. A total of 15 control trips were conducted, across 4 sites, over the period 11 August to 1 December 2000. More than 8500 adult A. planci were injected with sodium bi-sulphate during the control operation. The results indicate the control measures are effective in reducing local populations of A. planci. The number of animals injected per trip declined, over time, between 50-85% from previously recorded levels of peak abundance (for sites where such comparisons were possible). The long-term success of this operation requires an ongoing commitment to local control measures at these sites. Opportunities to incorporate new objectives into the programme, including i) increased data collection, ii) the determination of local population age structure, and iii) mapping the distribution and relative abundance of A. planci in relation to sites of major terrestrial runoff, and patterns of water movement around Rarotonga, are also briefly discussed.

Country Collection: Fiji
Abstract: The marine resource inventory survey of Tikina Levuka and Tikina Nasinu was conducted in November2006. The main aim of the survey was to creat awareness in the local communities on the status of their resources, which would help the indigenous communities to monitor activities undertaken within their qoliqoli, and help enforce laws to protect resources and distinct habitats within their jurisdiction. In addition, the information collected would allow the Department of Fisheries to understand the health, productivity and bio-diversities that exist in each traditional fishing boundary, and would help in the formulation of an appropriate management plan.

Abstract: Processing trials of surf redfish (Actinopyga mauritiana) beche-de-mer collected from the outer reef flat and slope of Rarotonga, have shown the finished dried product of marketable size (at least 50g, 10 cm, Grade 5) to be about 7% of its original wet weight and about 44% of its original length. Because of this, 14kg we weight, between 10-20 individuals weighing 700g to 1.4kg each, are needed to produce 1kg of marketable dried beche-de-mer.

Abstract: The attack of timber-hulled boat by marine borers, such as the Teredo worm, and the attachment of barnacles, sea grass, hydroids and other marine organisms to all types of ships hulls can seriously impede the running of the vessel. Protection of ship hulls against such attack has been going on since the 1760s, first using copper sheets, then paints containing copper powder and later paints containing various other poisons (arsenic, mercury, DDT, etc.).
