National efforts, regional solidarity honoured as FFA receives Pacific Ocean Commissioner’s Award 2013

FFA HQ, Honiara, SOLOMON ISLANDS.—The honour of receiving the 2013 Pacific Ocean Commissioners Award has been described as a moment of recognition for regional solidarity by the Forum Fisheries Director General, James Movick.

 News of the award came during a keynote statement at an ‘Oceanscape’ event last night in the wings of the current 44th Pacific Forum Leaders meeting this week in Majuro, Republic of the Marshall Islands. Keynote speaker and Pacific Ocean Commissioner, PIFS Secretary General Tuiloma Neroni Slade, made the announcement, noting the evolution of the FFA from its early beginnings in 1979, “in the face of much international scepticism and opposition. FFA is nowadays recognised as a global leader in their work to conserve and optimally manage the living marine resources of the region,” he said.
