It is intended to be strategically introduced to communities as part of a workshop or community awareness event. We recommend leaving ample time for elaboration and discussion of the points in the storybook, particularly the more sensitive or debatable ones.

  • This manual by SPC is designed for sea cucumber fishers in Pacific Islands. The species depicted in this manual are ones commonly fished in Pacific Islands. The price given to fishers for dried sea cucumbers depends on the species they are selling, how big the individuals are and how well they have been processed. This is because Asian consumers want to buy products that look nice and have an attractive appearance and taste when cooked. So, prices in Asian markets are high for the well processed sea cucumbers and much lower for ones poorly processed.
