Many communities in the lagoon are actively managing their fisheries. People place several sticks on the reef or the seagrass bed to signal a tambu area. Fishing in these areas is temporarily prohibited. This is an effective way to conserve marine resources. It is important to support these initiatives to ensure that fisheries in Lau Lagoon meet the needs of the people, now and in the future.
A dugong leaves a trail of bare sand after feeding on seagrass. This is called a "dugong trail."
