Update: 12:06PM THE Pacific Fisheries Leadership program was yesterday set up to ensure national and regional Pacific fisheries leaders address critical priorities, and become even better managers of the fisheries sector.

The initiative by the  Pacific Community (SPC) and the New Zealand government is aimed at enabling regional leaders to manage a sustainable fisheries and aquaculture that will result in increased economic and food security.

Consul general of New Zealand in New Caledonia Bruce Shepherd yesterday signed an agreement with SPC's director-general Dr Colin Tukuitonga.

"Fisheries is a critical priority for the Pacific and for New Zealand. New Zealand has met with many regional and national Pacific fisheries leaders and experts to design a professional development program highly tailored to the requirements of existing and future Pacific fisheries leader," said Mr Shepherd.

"We believe the program launched today (yesterday), and the consortium implementing it, led by SPC, will deliver a terrific, relevant and impactful experience to all fisheries program participants."
