Estimates of Fishery Production Levels by the Benefish Studies

Department of Environment, Government of Tuvalu

The guiding vision of the Tuvalu Fisheries Department is to promote:

Bountiful inshore fisheries supporting livelihoods and providing healthy local food
Sustainable oceanic fisheries providing strong revenue and satisfying jobs

Our Mission is to maximise social and economic returns to the people of Tuvalu through the sustainable management and wise use of Tuvalu’s living marine resources.


Studies of the benefits to Pacific Island countries and territories from fisheries (“Benefish” studies) have been carried out in the past. Gillett and Lightfoot (2001) focused on the year 1999, Gillett (2009) focused on 2007, and the present study focuses on 2014.

The fishery production levels for Tuvalu from those three studies are presented in this data.
