Rapid Coastal Assessment of Tagabe River Catchment Report, Port Vila, Vanuatu
The Tagabe Catchment is of high conservation value due to the high endemism. Vanuatu has six plant
species on the IUCN Red List, three of which are in Tagabe Catchment, which makes its protection
even more critical. The taboo has allowed for the replenishment of commercially important finfish
and invertebrate species. The Blacksands community has adapted to the taboo by changing their
fishing grounds and methods so that they are fishing further offshore. The findings are important to
establish baseline targets under the current state of the catchment.
