imageThe fisheries library is situated in the Coastal office, a small shelf in the corner where the fisheries librarian has her work desk. The collection consists of Tuvalu publications related to fisheries development written by local staff of the Tuvalu Fisheries Department as well as other organizations that based their research on Tuvalu fisheries. The small collection contains soft and hard copies of 227 local fisheries publications. Other reports and books in the library date back to 1986 covering all aspects of fisheries development and management carried out in-country. At present we have 78 hard copy reports on Tuvalu’s fisheries, plus 98 electronic reports. We are in the process of recovering old reports and digitising them for general use. Many of these will be made available either on this website or by request.

This will enable the Fisheries Department to provide a better service to its clients in the future.

The library is maintained by Matelina Stuart and you can contact her via the contacts page.
