Aquaculture in Fiji has been developed on a large scale, the milkfish being the only species cultured widely.  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.  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 .
