Climate change is usually associated with increasing temperatures and rising sea level. But these are only two of its many consequences, even if they are perhaps the most dramatic. Johann Bell and Tarûb Bahri, in their article on page 43, discuss the likely consequences of climate change for industrial and coastal fisheries of the Pacific Islands region, as well as for aquaculture. For industrial fisheries, it is predicted that the four main tuna stocks – albacore, bigeye, skipjack and yellowfin – will be ‘relatively’ unharmed by climate change because of their ability to move to favourable areas...

Niue Marine Ecological Surveys, 2016 and 2017

 

Niue is a small, remote, upraised island with limited reef development and no lagoon system. The eastern and southern coasts are exposed to swells driven by southeasterly trade winds, resulting in limited reef extension along these coasts. There is a marginally greater extension of reef terrace on the more sheltered west coast. Ten years ago, the annual consumption of fresh fish per person was estimated to be lower than the regional average; however, a more recent survey stated that over 80% of households fish for home consumption, suggesting that there has been significant fishing pressure on Niue’s reefs in the intervening period.
