Improve understanding and awareness of the challenges and opportunities facing the Pacific Small Island Developing States (Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu) in oceanic fisheries management.
