Fisheries Management (Amendment) Regulation 2016

The National Fisheries Policy will have to work with the Climate Change Policy to competently monitor sea surface temperature, as a slight increase in sea level temperature will severely affect biodiversity in the oceans. PNG’s coastal region is very dependent on marine resources, including tuna fisheries, and if implications of sea temperature is not monitored and addressed appropriately, it can affect the lives of many communities.
