Marine Park Brief

12th February 2012. A Marine Park meeting was held 9th February.  The meeting shared information on Key Biodiversity Areas, Important Bird Areas and Ecologically and Biologically Significant Marine Areas. The meeting also developed a work plan that will be implemented until the declaration of the Marine Park at the Pacific Islands Forum meeting in August. There will also be a big meeting March 12-14 where international experts will present on how they can help. Park still does not include Northern EEZ where tuna long-liners fish.
