Nauru to ban purse seine fishing for remainder of year

Nauru is expected to ban purse seine fishing from its waters again for the rest of 2011.

The Nauru Fisheries and Marine Resources says Nauru has almost used up its allocated fishing days for this year. Solomon Islands has already closed its waters to purse seiners for the year.

Nauru is one of eight countries that are parties to the Nauru Agreement, which involves a commitment to limiting fishing days to sustainably manage Pacific tuna stocks.
