PNA mourns Fijian journalist Robert Matau
The Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA) is sad to learn of the passing of respected journalist Robert Matau from Fiji.
(Friday 7 October 2016) Robert Matau started reporting on regional fisheries issues in 2010, as a journalist with regional magazine Islands Business, under the leadership of the late Laisa Taga. He was intrigued by the PNA as a Pacific organization run by Islanders and about the ongoing battle of the Pacific Islands to negotiate a fairer fishing treaty with the United States. His series of articles interviewed leaders from the Pacific and foreign fishing nations and he was the first to publish on several controversies and policy changes regarding regional fisheries.
