Aquaculture of PNG Fish: A Scientific Perspective

Papua New Guinea’s (PNG) fisheries industry has seen a major transformation thanks to the efforts of Master’s student Joshua Noiney, who joined UNSW Sydney in 2017. With a strong background in PNG fisheries, Mr. Noiney has implemented technology and training programs that have revolutionized fish farming in the country.

Since joining UNSW Sydney, Mr. Noiney has used fish farming as a tool to bring positive change to communities that have been plagued by violence. By providing opportunities and resources for fish farming, he has witnessed individuals in these communities redirecting their lives towards growth and community development.

Professor Sammut’s projects, in collaboration with UNSW Sydney, involve various agencies, NGOs, governments, local schools, prisons, and communities in both Australia and PNG. The interdisciplinary teams from both countries work together as equals to enhance the livelihoods of individuals through fish farming. This collaborative effort has been instrumental in the success of the projects.

These initiatives have led to significant growth in the fish farming industry in PNG, with the number of fish farms increasing from 11,000 in 2009 to over 70,000 farms in 2023. The foundation laid by these projects has not only transformed the fish farming industry but also contributed to the overall well-being of communities in Papua New Guinea.

The interdisciplinary approach taken by Professor Sammut and her team has proven successful as it brings together diverse perspectives and expertise to address complex challenges faced by communities affected by violence.

Overall, Mr. Noiney’s contributions along with Professor Sammut’s collaborative efforts have brought about significant changes that have positively impacted communities affected by violence while contributing significantly to the growth of the fish farming industry in Papua New Guinea.
