The Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency


The Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) is an intergovernmental organisation working to strengthen national capacity and regional solidarity so Pacific nations can manage, control, and develop their fisheries now and into the future.


We are located in Honiara, Solomon Islands, working with our 17 member nations Australia, the Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Zealand, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.


Since our inception in 1979, we have facilitated regional cooperation that is in line with our vision – “our people enjoying the greatest possible social and economic benefits from the sustainable use of offshore fisheries and resources”. Through our work and presence in the region, Pacific countries benefit from the sustainable fishing and consumption of tuna – worth over $3 billion US dollars a year and an essential resource to many people.
