    Abstract

    Introduction: The aim of this survey was to gather information for the supply chain analysis of Caulerpa racemosa in Fiji. Sites were identified from preliminary market surveys conducted in 2010. Site visits were carried out during July, October and November, 2011. The areas visited included, Yasawa Islands (Gunu), Sigatoka (Lomawai, Vusama), Rakiraki (Namiumada, Navolau), Tavua (Vatutavui), Labasa (Vuniuto, Sasake, Lakeba) and Savusavu (Dromoniku). Some villages that supplied nama were not visited due to time constraints and a village funeral. These included Somosomo and Nasoqo in Yasawa, Naweni in Savusavu, Vatulele Island in Serua, Nasosivi, Nabubu and Drua Drua in Labasa (Figure 1). Anecdotal information from shipping personnel, fisheries officers and market vendors suggested that Lomaiviti (Nairai and Batiki islands) and Tailevu also supplied nama occasionally, depending on availability of transport.
