Perceived threats can be summarised as arising from deleterious human actions and negative attitudes to the environment, leading to inappropriate behaviour, such as littering, over-fishing and hunting, using fishing nets and modern fishing method, the use of guns and the introduction of pests; the use of inappropriate technologies, such as solid and liquid waste water disposal systems; uncontrolled use of resources and control of livestock; increasing consumption patterns, arising from increases in human populations, demands and changing lifestyles; institutional weaknesses; ignorance and l
This data presents the value and volume of estimated fisheries catches and aquaculture harvest in the year 2014. It was presented in the 5th National Report to the Convention on Biological Diversity.
Data extracted from the 'Fisheries in the PICs' report, 2016. From the table, it can be seen that, in 2014, foreign-based offshore fishing in the Tuvalu zone produced 96,898 mt of fish, with an in-zone value of US$132 million (A$161 million).
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.

Tuvalu is a member of the Montreal Protocol Pacific Island Countries Network, which was established in 2008 to support compliance with the Montreal Protocol, in recognition of these countries’ unique social, economic and environmental characteristics. By 2016 these countries had achieved an 85% reduction in HCFC consumption since 2009, well ahead of their HCFC phase-out obligations.
Between 2000 and 2010, Tuvalu’s use of HCFCs increased slightly, due to the increased use of HCFC-22 in air conditioning and refrigeration equipment (Government of Tuvalu 2010). Since 2013, an annual quota system has been implemented to regulate the import of HCFCs and ensure a complete phase-out by 2030
