Biophysically Special, Unique Marine Areas of Fiji


Fiji, located in the Oceania region, has a very rich natural capital. This report is a product of the Marine and Coastal Biodiversity Management in Pacfic Island Countries (MACBIO) project and outlines the process of defining and describing the Special, Unique Marine Areas (SUMAs) of Fiji. Appointing these unique marine areas provides an important tool that serves as input for many decisions related to MPA establishment and management. The MACBIO projects works together with national and regional stakeholders to document different approaches to sustainable marine resource management and conservation.
