Ocean Health Index French Polynesia - The Ocean Health Index is a valuable tool for the ongoing assessment of ocean health. By providing a means to advance comprehensive ocean policy and compare future progress, the Index can inform decisions about how to use or protect marine ecosystems. The Index is a collaborative effort, made possible through contributions from more than 65 scientists/ocean experts and partnerships between organizations including the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, Sea Around Us, Conservation International, National Geographic, and the New England Aquarium. Information for French Polynesia


There are a hundred or so longlining vessels based in Tahitiís Port de Peche (fishing port), that fish between the Society and Marquesas island groups. The longliners target albacore, bigeye, and yellowfin tuna, although they may also fish for swordfish, sailfish, skipjack, and mahi mahi. Of the hundred or so longlining boats though, only fifty or sixty of them are operating, as there is waning interest in fishing due to regulations and the knowledge of them required to captain a fishing boat. Despite a diminishing fishing force,  French Polynesia has one of the highest consumptions of fish per capita in the world. Between pelagic, coastal and lagoon fisheries, eight thousand to ten thousand tons of fish are caught commercially in French Polynesia each year. With a population of 260,000, per person consumption is between 61.5 and 77 pounds of fish per year, or about a sixth of a pound of fish per day, not including fishing for subsistence. The majority of tuna caught in French Polynesian waters reaches residents through markets, restaurants, and even schools.
