Pole and Line Fishing
In an interview with Adrian Wickham, NFD General Manager, this beautiful video shows the highly skilled Solomon Island crew in action during a typical fishing operation on one of NFDs pole and line vessels.
National Fisheries Developments Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Tri Marine, owns and operates 5 modern, Solomon Island flag tuna purse seiners. These boats are based in Noro, Western Province, Solomon Islands. The NFD Solomon Island fleet of purse seiners supplies the Soltai tuna cannery in Noro. There is no other tuna canning operation in the Western and Central Pacific that is supplied exclusively by domestic flag fishing boats.
