The Caroline Islands are an archipelago of small islands scattered across the western Pacific Ocean. Across these islands, many different forms of traditional fishing knowledge is shared. Utilising time-honored methods like handline fishing, fishermen venture into the waters, relying on their ancestral knowledge to catch a diverse array of marine life.
This sustainable practice not only maintains local livelihoods but also preserves the fragile marine ecosystems that are vital to the nation's well-being.
