British Indian Ocean Territories (BIOT) Fisheries Expert Assignment

2000; British Indian Ocean Territory; Government of British Indian Ocean Territories

Itad was contracted by the Government of British Indian Ocean Territories for a study of the physical, economic, social and environmental feasibility of establishing permanent re-settlement on the Salomons and Peros Banhos atolls by the Ilois.

Itad investigated and assessed the marine bio-diversity, beach and fisheries resources and related maritime and financial issues relevant to the possibility of establishing opportunities for development of a sustainable fishery for both local consumption and possibly export.

The study was commissioned by the Government of BIOT into the feasibility of establishing permanent re-settlement on the islands.
