Pacific fisheries training scholarship boost from New Zealand, FFA partnership

FFA HQ, Honiara, SOLOMON ISLANDS. — New Zealand Aid and the Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency will be collaborating in a new initiative to promote maritime qualifications training for the Pacific.

The initiative covers the eight FFA members with which New Zealand has bilateral aid programs – Cook Islands, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu. Scholarships are for a range of NZ-based courses including senior seafarer licensing for inshore, offshore and deep sea fishing positions. It broadens the range of access for interested applicants, who can deal directly with their NZ High Commissions or Fisheries officials’ in country, or with FFA.

“We are pleased to support programs which deliver incentives for gaining skills and qualifications within regional Fisheries,” says FFA Director-General James Movick.

“The ranks of high-level masters in their trade with the technical qualifications to add to their skills are always going to bring more benefits to their communities – and those who excel in Pacific Fisheries, like any industry, are already in high demand anywhere they go.”
