Aquaculture in the Marshall Islands

Aquaculture in the Marshall Islands is-governed by the Marshall Islands Marine Resources Authority. [1] A hatchery for giant clams has been established by the national government in Likiep Atoll , and at least one other clam farm in Mili Atoll . [2] At the CSD-16 Partnerships Fair in 2008, Erik Hagberg suggests that Holothuroidea cultivation is a viable option for developing aquaculture in the country. [3]
