  Fiji Locally-Managed Marine Area Network - Fiji
The community of Ucunivanua on the eastern coast of Fiji’s largest island was the site of the first locally managed marine area (LMMA) in Fiji in 1997, in which scientists, environmentalists, and local villagers used traditional fishing prohibitions to allow for the dramatic regeneration of marine resources.
