The severe decline in sea cucumber populations due to fishery over exploitation throughout Fiji is of high concern. In 2015, the Wildlife Conservation Society and Department of Fisheries conducted a value chain analysis of the wild caught sea cucumber industry on the islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Levu in Fiji. The objective of the study was to understand the relationships and linkages between buyers, processors, sellers, and other service providers, and to identify opportunities and constraints to industry growth and competitiveness in Fiji through the value chain lens.
