Example text

The disadvantage of rafts is that they require more labour and materials to set up (in Kiribati, even bamboo would need to be imported). In terms of their advantages, grazing by fishes on Pacific Island farms occurs at levels that can be tolerated for the most part, and there is currently no shortage of suitable reef space for off-bottom culture. The ultimate test of whether or not rafts are an improvement over off-bottom cultivation will lie in the proportion of farmers that willingly adopt this method of cultivation.

To counter this, Atoll Seaweed Company Ltd has embarked on socio-economic study of farmer motivations at Tabuaeran (Antoine Teitelbaum, pers. ) and on a strategy to revitalize former farming locations in the Gilberts Group closer to the main port at Tarawa (Derek Pendle, pers. ). There are also signs that, through reflagging of its Hawaii-based vessels to exempt them from the US Jones Act (Magin, 2003), during 2004 NLC ship visits to Tabuaeran will decline or even cease. Kiribati production is recovering and is likely to continue to fluctuate around 1000±500 t for the foreseeable future.
