Almost all documents outlining strategies for tuna development listed equitable distribution of benefits among the citizenry as a key aspiration. Indeed, one of the main reasons domestication is so popular is because benefits from access fees have largely not been felt by Pacific island populations. With domestic developments, at least some of the wealth from tuna is distributed among the people via salaries and wages. Pacific islander interviewees were particularly concerned that benefits from tuna developments should be felt in rural or outer-island areas.

At a regional level, management measures must be designed to take account of economic factors and the complex interactions between gear and species across EEZs and the high seas. Furthermore, fisheries management is most effective when it takes into consideration the social, cultural and political contexts in which it operates. Recommendation 1 Place greater emphasis on predicting economic outcomes—particularly across fisheries, gear types and WCPFC members—when designing and determining management measures, including levels of fishing effort by domestic and foreign fleets.

Political and social aspirations to spread developments around the country thus constrain the economic viability of domestic industries, thereby confounding the overarching economic aspiration to capture more wealth from tuna resources via domestication. Policy decisions about the geographic locations of tuna developments are a juggling act between the economies of scale and synergies provided by consolidating industries, with social and political imperatives to bring developments to particular locations.
