Pacific island governments and communities are constantly seeking to tap new and established international markets for their farm produce. This paper gives the results of a study, jointly undertaken by ACIAR and the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC), that paints a clearer picture of the constraints on seaweed production and marketing by Pacific island countries and the options available for overcoming them.
