Sample text

Initially, during the 1980’s, communities were chosen for seaweed projects purely for biological/environmental reasons. For example in Fiji the areas chosen were in Ra Province where there are strongly competing livelihoods, and project managers expected farmers to spend several days away from home and far out at sea on platforms erected near favourable growing sites (Sam Mario, pers. ). Later, a wide range of communities was chosen for seaweed projects and supported through provision of fibreglass punts and 40 hp outboard motors.

2003c). Annual seaweed production under this new initiative rose to 419 t by 2000, but levels have not reached the projections forecast by Ask et al. (2003c) and production is now declining. , 2003). Seaweed production in the region has been both greatest and most consistent in Kiribati (Why, 1987; Uan, 1990; South, 1993; JICA, 1996). Commercial Kappaphycus cultivation commenced in the mid 1980’s initially in the Gilbert Group, and later returned to the Line and Phoenix Groups where the early trials had taken place (JICA, 1996).

Yezoensis, P. tenera and Porphyra sp. showed remarkable adaptation to free floating conditions in the new habitat created by tanks and ponds. Growth of P. linearis, on the other hand, was less successful even though we expected conditions to be more favorable for this local species. , 1999). This may also account for an intrinsic resistance to epiphytes and/or bacterial infections that, although not quantified, were exceptionally high for P. linearis as compared to the other three species experimented.
