THE Ministry of Indigenous Affairs is looking for experienced and qualified consultants to review the Qoliqoli (Fishing Grounds) policy.
In an advertisement, the ministry said a critical outcome of the review would be the development of a policy framework.
The objective of the review is to create wealth for both the "qoliqoli and user", maintain land and environment sustainability for the generations to come and maintain social stability among all communities in particular the qoiliqoli owners".
Cabinet approved the review of the Fishing Ground (Qoliqoli) Compensation Policy late last year.
The decision was based on a submission by Commander, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama
