Palau Visitors Authority (PVA) representatives will travel with Palauan fishermen to Yokohama, Japan this week for the Japan Fishing Show.

Held at the Pacifico Yokohama, from January 19th – 21st, PVA will join over 200 exhibitors who will meet more than 50,000 visitors over the 3-day event. Local sportsfishing tour operators and members of Real Fishermen, a sustainable fishing program from Ebiil Society, will join the PVA booth. In addition to meeting consumers, PVA is also arranging for meetings with popular fishing equipment brands, all for the purpose of promoting sportsfishing in Palau.

Angling is big business in Japan and the fishing public is particularly well-served with some of the best gear manufacturers in the world. The expo will also feature an “Angler’s Idol” competition in which some young female anglers will demonstrate their talents on stage. The show is a collaboration of the Japan Fishing Tackle Manufactures Association, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, the Kanagawa prefectural Government, the City of Yokohama, the Japan Sportfishing Foundation, and the National Fishing Rod Fair Trade Conference.

For more information, please contact PVA at 488-1930/2793.

PICRC’s first ever “Environmental Award” will be awarded at 17th Anniversary Fundraising Dinner Gala

On Thursday night, Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) will celebrate its 17th Anniversary with the Annual Fundraising Dinner Gala.  On this special night, PICRC will present the first ever, Tommy E. Remengesau Jr. Environmental Award”.


Last year, during PICRC’s 16th Anniversary, the first and last “Visionary Award” was presented to President Tommy E. Remengesau Jr. for exceptional visionary leadership in conservation in Palau and around the world. That night the “Visionary Award” was retired and in its place, the Tommy E. Remengesau, Jr. Environmental Award was created.


This Thursday, the award will be presented to a special person who had demonstrated significant contribution to conservation, management and protection of Palau’s environment in the past few years, or over a lifetime.


The call for nominations for the “Tommy E. Remengesau, Jr. Environmental Award” went out on September 21, 2017 and closed on November 10, 2017.  There were 13 nominees for this award.   Nominees were a diverse group of individuals, which included men and women from a variety of agencies and organizations.  Among the 13 nominated, one was selected by PICRC to be the winner of this award.


While tickets for this event have been sold out, the evening’s program will be broadcasted, live, by Palau Wave Radio.  PICRC encourages the public to tune-in and join their largest event of the year and celebrate the winner of PICRC’s first ever environmental award.

PICRC joins Rubekul Belau for Christmas luncheon and presentation

On December 19, 2017, PICRC staff and board members joined the Rubekul Belau’s annual Christmas luncheon to present recent research results. During the luncheon, Chief Aquarist Asap Bukurrou, shared findings from the research highlighting the threat of sea-level rise and impact of increased typhoons on Melekeok coastline.

“It is good to see the hard work and solid research that the Center has been conducting regarding our reefs,” expressed Paramount High Chief Reklai, “but it frightens me to hear what the future may hold.  This research is useful for us to start preparation to deal with the impact of climate change.”

During the luncheon, PICRC’s CEO, Dr. Yimnang Golbuu, shared the plans for the upcoming 17th Anniversary Dinner Gala, which the House of Delegates will co-host.  The Rubekul Belau were delighted with the news that the House of Delegates will co-host the anniversary dinner.  Last year, Rubekul Belau joined President Remengesau in co-hosting the very successful 16th Anniversary Fundraising Dinner Gala.

After the luncheon, Dr. Golbuu expressed, “It was a great honor to be able to join the Rubekul Belau in their Christmas luncheon and discuss some of the latest research from the Center.  They have been among the Center’s biggest supporters since the beginning when the Center first opened its doors on January 18, 2001.  We know that with their unrelenting support, the Center will continue to prosper and flourish in the coming year.”

School Health Program Workshop held to promote healthy diet!


On December 22, a School Health Program Workshop, hosted by Taiwan Shin Kong Memorial Hospital (SKH) and Ministry of Education(MOE), invited Food Service Program staffs, and school principals and cooks in Palau to discuss issues of promoting healthy diet at schools.


The workshop was held at Palau Royal Resort with over 40 participants from various elementary and high schools and staffs from MOE. Two Taiwanese nutritionists, Ms. Tzu-Wen HSIA and Ms. Nai-Chia OU, were invited to the workshop to share their Taiwan experience. During the workshop, principals and cooks also share their first-hand experiences with nutritionists so as to find the best approach to help promote healthy diet among  students.


Ms. Ching-hwa Lin, Program Coordinator from SKH, said the main purpose of hosting this workshop is to stop non-communicable diseases which has been the goal of the government’s health policy.


Before this workshop, SKH started the School Health Program in Meyuns Elementary School in 2015. Healthy diet and physical exercises were introduced to the campus aiming to cut down the obesity and to improve the health of students. Later, the program was extended to Koror Elementary School in 2017.


Through this workshop, Ms. Lin hoped to share the past experiences with other principals and cooks in hope of benefiting more students in Palau.
