Vulnerability and dependence: the nearshore fisheries of Tuvalu

Our study focused specifically on nearshore fisheries of Tuvalu. We investigated the extent to which communities on two atolls, one urban and one rural, were dependent on these fisheries for both food and income. With the results we compare
current catch and consumption rates with previously published data. We also consider our results in the light of available information on the size of available standing stocks. This leads to a discussion of whether current fishing efforts are
sustainable, and what management approaches may be required.
