Fiji’s Department of Fisheries and SPC’s Aquaculture Section recently collaborated on an advanced-skills training in Kappaphycus seaweed farming for seaweed project field men in Fiji. Organised jointly by Department of Fisheries staff Lorima Hansen and Sam Mario and SPC’s Tim Pickering (10–12 September), the emphasis was on seaweed nursery techniques (floating raft and floating longline construction), seaweed biology and ecology (to understand culture and processing methods), an update of current trends in world markets, and a full-day practical session (at Nukulau Island near Suva).
