Kiribati is composed of coral atolls on a submerged volcanic chain scattered across 5.2 million sq. km (2 million sq. miles) of the Central Pacific. 33 coral islands that made up the Republic of Kiribati are divided into three island groups: 17 islands in the Gilbert Group (including Banaba), 8 in the Phoenix Group and 8 in the Line Group. Of these 33 islands of the Republic of Kiribati, 21 are inhabited. All islands, with the exception of Banaba (Ocean Island), are low-lying and at risk of sea level rising.

Formerly known as Gilbert Islands, it was declared the British Protectorate in 1892 and in 1915 the Gilbert and Ellice Islands Colony under the British empire was formed. In 1971 Gilbert and Ellice Islands gained self rule but separated in 1975 and granted self internal government. Gilbert Islands became independent as Kiribati on 12th July 1979.

Forum Fisheries Agency - The Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) is based in Honiara, Solomon Islands and comprises 17 member governments. It was established in August 1979 to help countries manage their fishery resources that fall within their 200 mile exclusive economic zones. The founding document of the Agency is the South Pacific Forum Fisheries Agency Convention.

Kiribati has the largest Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ or national waters) of all the FFA member countries - a massive area of 3,550,000 square kilometres - posing a significant development opportunity and surveillance challenge for the small island developing state.
