The bad news about fishing in the Pacific continues.

With big eye and Bluefin tuna populations rapidly depleting, warnings are being issued about coastal fisheries.

So great is the concern, the Secretariat of the Pacific Community says Pacific nations may have to find an alternative source of protein for thier populations within 20 years.

Moses Amos is the Director of the Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Ecosystems division at SPC.

He says as the human population increases and the fish population decreases, Pacific nations will need to find an alternative food source.
