MARINE protected areas (MPAs) in the North contribute to the WWF South Pacific's national target of having 30 per cent of Fiji's inshore and offshore waters as marine protected areas by 2010.

WWF South Pacific representative Kesaia Tabunakawai said this was also part of the agency's global target of having 10 per cent of protected sea waters around the globe by 2010.

Ms Tabunakawai said the MPA's of Mali was part of a bigger network of protected areas within the shared fishing grounds of the qoliqoli cokovata of Dreketi, Macuata, Mali and Sasa districts, stretching over 1344 of ocean waters, north of Vanua Levu.

"These contribute to the protection of the Great Sea Reef, which is high in marine biota and a focal point for conservation for WWF in the South Western Pacific region," she said.
