The European Union has warned Solomon Islands it needs to crack down on illegal fishing or it will impose a ban on the country's tuna exports.
The EU has also issued a warning to Papua New Guinea and Tuvalu.
The EU's head of development cooperation in Solomon Islands, Pavlos Evangelidis, says the warning is a way to help the Solomons curb illegal fishing.
"What it essentially means is that the EU has established a formal dialogue now with the Solomon Islands to help it progress - it is in the mutual benefit of both the Solomon Islands and the European Union
