    About This Project

    Fishing for food is extremely important in many rural areas of Fiji. However, as many reef fishers shift from eating their catch to selling the majority for profit, fishing pressures exerted on typically targeted fishes are increasing dramatically. My study will use genetic markers to uncover the movement patterns of five of these important species throughout the islands of Fiji, to help determine how to best protect these valuable fish stocks.
    Blast off!
