Long liners given approval to fish off American Samoa

The US National Marine Fisheries Service has approved a recommendation to allow US registered long liners based in Pago Pago to fish in the Large Vessel Protected Area in American Samoa waters.

The recommendation was made last year by the Western Pacific Fishery Management Council and was strongly objected to by American Samoa leaders including the Governor Lolo Matalasi Moliga who argued that the protected area is preserved for locally owned alia or small fishing boats.

In its decision released today, the National Marine Fisheries Service said approving this action is intended to improve the efficiency and economic viability of the American Samoa long line fleet, while ensuring that fishing by the long line and small vessel fleets remains sustainable on an ongoing basis.

The Service will annually review the effects of this final rule on catch rates, small vessel participation, and sustainable fisheries development initiatives.

It is similar to working in many small countries, if you find a job in American Samoa and move there you may or may not like it. Most government jobs are on contract. When the contract finishes you go back to where you came from.  It is a small job market, there is not much mobility for foreigners.

Good Evening All,

Hope everyone is doing well. I wanted to ask anyone that has returned to the US from teaching in Samoa, how this effects your success in gaining a teaching position here in the US?? For example, if one has a teaching degree here and goes to AmSamoa and teaches for a year, returns to the US and wants to be an educator here in the states, does that experience help??  Thank you very much.
