French Polynesia has jurisdiction over a EEZ of more than 5 million km². Logically, the fisheries sector is considered as an opportunity for growth and economy diversification.
F & S experts have been selected by the Local Authorities and by AFD to prepare a master plan for the development of the high-sea longline fishery. This strategic document aims at planning the development of the sector over the next 10 years according to strategic orientations established in partnership with the Government and all stakeholders, including vessels operators and businesses involved in the tuna trading sector.
The study started in January 2017 and will be completed by June of the same year.
