The Ministry of Fisheries will continue to monitor the buying or selling of kawakawa and donu, and urges people not to buy or sell the critically endangered groupers from June to September.

Fijian Minister for Fisheries, Osea Naiqamu, officiating at the inaugural 4FJ Movement Ball said:

As a Pacific Islands nation, health reefs and healthy fisheries are critical to supporting the Food and income needs of our people.

About the 4FJ Movement:

The 4FJ campaign (short for For Fiji) is designed to break through the noise about a critical issue to Fiji’s future. It aims to help people understand why the increasing loss of a prized food fish is critical to the people of Fiji, and then help you do something, right here, right now, to protect them — and ultimately, our way of life.
