Bilan de la mise en valeur des ressources de la mer à Wallis-et-Futuna

Gilles Blanchet
p. 110-121

Abstracts

Like many island countries of the South Pacific,Wallis and Futuna have scarce land resources but control a large sea area endowed with promising marine resources. Fishing is officially considered as a means to better satisfy food needs, to create new jobs and to provide larger incomes to local people. It could.also slow down the migratory process to nearby New Caledonia of foreign people competing with Kanak manpower. All over the past years, many efforts have been made to promote the modernization and the expansion of fishing industry. So far, they have not been successful and fishing has failed to adapt to changing circumstances. It nevertheless encompasses true possibilities of development.
