Fisheries provide 40% to 90% of animal protein for Pacific island coastal communities and are a key resource for food security, livelihoods, revenue and development. Recent studies have indicated that 75% of Pacific island coastal fisheries will not meet food security needs by 2030 due to population pressures, poor management, and declining fisheries, and climate change is likely to exacerbate this problem.
