Aquaculture in Fiji

Aquaculture in Fiji has been developed on a large scale, the milkfish being the only species cultured widely. [1] A Fijian prawn farm aimed to produce 25 tons of Penaeidae in 1990, but did not make it to the halfway mark in their goal. [2] Most aquaculture endeavors in the field of high-value cultivation for commercial export, however the country has not been able to compete with the aquaculture industry in Southeast Asia . [3]
