Review of Our Ocean’s Promise: From aspiration to inspiration: The Marshall Islands Fishing story, by Giff Johnson
Our Ocean’s Promise: From aspiration to inspiration: The Marshall Islands Fishing story, by Giff Johnson. Majuro: Marshall Islands Marine Resources Authority, 2021, 200 pages.
THIS lavishly illustrated history of the development of commercial fishing in the Marshall Islands will be of interest to anybody concerned with economic development and sensible management of fishing stocks in the Pacific. For many islands their offshore economic zones and fishing fields have been a source, even potentially, of wealth. However, overfishing and the loss of fishing stock through legal agreements, leasing arrangements and outright piracy have been a problem for many island states in recent years.
