Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 27/04/2018

The Hon Ministers for MEIDECC – Poasi Tei and Minister of Fisheries – Semisi Fakahau – yesterday launched a report on the Marine Bioregions of Tonga.

The report presents for the first time, marine bio regions across the Southwest Pacific in general, and Tonga in particular at a scale that can be used nationally as a basis for the systematic identification of an eco-logically representative system of marine protected areas.

This report is focused upon one important but only one input to marine spatial planning which is the development of marine bio regions.
