Fiji offers one of the most exceptional tropical marine environments in the world. Fiji comprises approximately 844 highlands, entrances and islets, which occupy an area of approximately 1.3 million square kilometers.
Fiji also hosts the Great Sea Reef, the third longest coral reef in the world. It is estimated that there are 1,000 coral reefs in Fiji, covering 10,000 square kilometers, which represent about 3-4 percent of the world’s coral reefs.
In this vibrant ecological framework there are almost 400 known coral species, more than 1,200 varieties of fish and a multitude of invertebrates. Fiji also hosts some unique marine and coastal species, such as the common fish or better known as Napoleon fish.
The warm waters of Fiji are also important migration routes for 12 species of cetaceans. Four of these species, the blue whale, the northern whale, the humpback whale and the sperm whale are considered endangered or vulnerable.
In 2003, the Fiji government offered protection to these species by declaring the territorial waters of Fiji as a whale sanctuary. The best way to share all this is to visit Fiji on a sailboat, rent a boat or a catamaran, and organize your charter in this beautiful archipelago.
Nature at the heart of Fiji’s lifestyle
Fijians have important traditional relationships with the sea, which are reflected in their lifestyles, customs, traditional knowledge and history.
Around 80% of the population lives on the coast and depends heavily on marine resources to feed, earn a living and earn cash income.
Marine resources are also used for minerals, pharmaceuticals, building materials and a wide range of useful products.
