Government subsidy to deal with US Samoa tidal wave losses
and HONOLULU (AP) - American Samoa receives a government subsidy to rebuild a morass and a reef of mangroves that have been affected by the 2009 cataclysm. This U.S. Wildlife Service subsidy will help rehabilitate 18-acre wetlands in Leone Village, one of the areas most affected by the cataclysm.
Thuesday the agent said the allowance is almost $270,000 in value. Leone marshlands are among the biggest and most important mangroves in American Samoa. This is one of the $20 million the European Commission is allocating this year to 24 vulnerable humid areas in 13 countries and regions.

Scientist addresses Samoa america large ship banned area
A group of fishing experts who advise the Western Pacific Regional Management Council, the SSC, closed a three-day session in Honolulu in May. Fishers, other interested parties and the general community are welcome to attend the meetings and decision-making for federal fishing in the Hawaiian off-shore areas, the territories of American Samoa and Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) and the US Pacific Remote Island Areas.
National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center (PIFSC) should supply the new opened segments of the large ban on shipping in American Samoa with angling quotas and other fisheries reporting. The NMFS PIFSC presented yearly long line fisheries trend in America Samoa, showing a decrease in the number of boats, the number of hook sets and the number of CPUEs (per unit) of skippjack, mahimayhi, bluemarlin, oilfish and bluefish.
In 2015 there were 20 boats in operation and the capture and C. P.U.E. of albumacore - the target type of longlining in the territory - was increasing. The SSC argued that a US application to raise the catches of bigeye tuna in the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EPA) should be made under a scheme that does not raise the overall harvesting pressures on EPA bigeyes.
While the EPO's Eye Level is 54,000 tonnes per year for all fishing fleet, only 34,000 tonnes were captured in 2015. There is a 500 tonne US longlining line for ships over 24 metres. In addition, the SSC suggested that the surveillance of the catches of the EPA swordfishes by deep-sea Hawaiian fisheries should be continued.
In addition, it was pointed out that the overall EPA quota of butterfish should not exceed 5,490 tonnes per year, which is the highest possible sustained return for the herd. Lastly, the SSC suggested that Councils employees consult with the national and local authorities to make sure that sea fisheries for private sale through the public service - and not through the fishing auctions or other means of collecting fishing information - are eradicated.
