Minister for Fisheries and Marine Resources

Hon. Nestor Giro

Welcome to the Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources.

Our Mission is to provide effective services to facilitate sustainable management and development of our fisheries and aquatic resources for the benefit of all Solomon Islanders.

Our Services

Ministry services include:

  • Coordinating all fisheries activities operating within the 200 miles economic zone of the Solomon Islands.
  • Improving current fishing facilities to encourage local fishermen to effectively preserve and market their fish and other perishable marine products.
  • Ensuring that the harvesting practices of all marine resources are properly coordinated and monitored so that certain resources are not depleted unnecessarily.

To achieve its mission, the Ministry delivers services through its seven (7) Divisions.
