Media awareness boosts grouper conservation

KAWAKAWA and donu will have more freedom to breed from June to September every year if more people continue to pledge in the country.

Pledging not to eat, sell or catch kawakawa and donu during their breeding season means abundant fish supply in the future for people.

The 4FJ Movement campaign was considered a great success during the Hibiscus Festival, as 463 people pledged not to eat, sell or catch kawakawa and donu from this month until the next month.

SeaWeb program associate Alumeci Nakeke said many were now aware of the campaign and what it stood for and many had come forward to pledge not to eat these fish during the breeding season.

Mrs Nakeke said because of the awareness through the media, a lot of people had pledged. She said those interested could visit the SeaWeb office in Suva or pledge online on the 4FJ Movement campaign website.
