The premier body representing the fisheries' concerns of the 18 members of the Pacific Islands Forum says improved surveillance is just one of a number key steps the organisation plans in 2017.

The Forum Fisheries Agency's chief executive James Movick gave Koroi Hawkins an idea of what's on the agenda.

He began by stressing the importance for countries wanting to develop more processing at home to have more rigorous scrutiny of the financial merit or otherwise of such schemes.
