    The Jalwoj (Jaluit) Malmel construction and details of a traditional Marshallese sailing outrigger canoe (tipnol)
    ( 1989) Alessio, Dennis F.
    "The mainstay of the traditionaI artisanaI fishing craft in the Marshall Islands is the sailing outrigger canoe (tipnol) .1 The tipnol represents the ultimate in design adaption, inter and intralagoon travel and fishing. In recent years, however, imported boats built of aluminium and fiberglass, and powered by outboard motors have become more prominent, given the increased availability of money. At the same time, the traditional canoe building has declined, mainly, not because of technological disadvantages, but because traditional canoes are connected with the "old ways" and do not fit into the set of "modern" Americanized ideas and role models presented to the people of the Marshall IsIands." (Quoted from Introduction.)

    Fishing for tuna in Pacific prehistory
    ( 1998-03) Fraser, Karen
    The archaeological evidence from faunal analyses in the Pacific suggests an emphasis on inshore fish and fishing strategies. In contrast, the faunal evidence for offshore fish such as tuna is slight. Several sites in East Polynesia with high proportions of tuna are unusual in this regard. Yet ethnographic accounts of fishing in the Pacific region often contain detailed descriptions of offshore fishing expeditions to catch pelagic fish, including tuna. These fish continue to occupy a significant place in the cultural life of many Pacific island communities.

    Gross Domestic Product 2005-2022
    (Solomon Islands National Statistical Office, Ministry of Finance & Treasury, Solomon Islands Government, 2024-02-14) Solomon Islands National Statistics Office
    This statistical bulletin (1/2024) presents gross domestic product (GDP) estimates from 2005-2022 following from the previous bulletin with new estimates for 2021 and 2022. The Solomon Islands National Statistics Office (SINSO) have decided not to make revisions to past estimates at this time. The SINSO is also planning the implementation of the 2024/2025 Household Income and Expenditure Survey (HIES) and a National Enterprise Census in the third quarter of 2024. These exercises will establish new benchmarks for GDP and require substantial revisions to the time series. SINSO have decided to put through revisions to 2020 and past years arising from methodological improvements and the population census at this time. Any methodological changes made for the current measures have been chained on to the 2020 levels to avoid distorting growth rates. Revisions tables are therefore omitted.
