Socio-economic Aspects of Giant Clams in the Lau Group, Fiji and Farming Prospects: Results of Field Research
Reports the result of a survey of villagers on the islands of Lakeba, Tuvuca, Cicia, Balavu and two islands of Ono-i-Lau, in the Lau Group, Fiji. Information was gathered about the presence of giant clam species, changes in their abundance, uses, harvesting methods and gender roles in harvesting. Other matters investigated were taste for clams, rules on harvesting and exchanging clams, interest in clam farming, likely role of men and women in clam farming, especially in subtidal versus intertidal farming, and the prospects for giant clam farming in the village communities. This paper reports the results on a village-by-village basis and overall.
