The "Fiji Fishery Resource Profiles" is a 240-page publication with 44 chapters, each of which is dedicated to a species group such as tuna, giant clams, lobsters, groupers and parrotfish. The chapters have sub-sections on the species present, distribution, biology/ecology, the fishery, production/marketing, stock status, management, current legislation/policies on exploitation, and management recommendations. Spawning aggregation protection is a recurrent theme. It is intended to be a “one-stop shop” for information for fishery managers and other interested people.

This workshop was an opportunity to bring together the knowledge an experience of communities, managers, biologists and conservationists to share their knowledge of the history and condition of fisheries associated with coral reef ecosystems in Fiji.
Special attention was directed towards the more vulnerable fishery species and issues: those that call for particularly urgent attention. There was a focus on fish spawning aggregations, the subject of study in Fiji over the previous three years.
The Workshop Report contains the findings.
