Papua New Guinea - SEASMART

Sustainability, Equitability and Profitability are the three core goals of the SEASMART program for the development of a marine aquarium trade in Papua New Guinea (PNG). Building on local tradition and customs, supported by international market demand, and utilising cutting edge technology and traceability mechanisms, the EcoEZ SEASMART Program is helping to create a new natural resource trade in PNG that is changing the way natural resource exploitation is carried out, ensuring local management control, resource extraction sustainability, product traceability and industry profitability.

The PNG SEASMART Program is a joint effort by the PNG National Fisheries Authority (NFA) and EcoEZ Inc. The SEASMART Program is working with PNG's National, Provincial and local governments, educational and development institutions, the donor and investment communities, and international and local businesses to efficiently develop the marine aquarium trade throughout the country.
