Uproar by Pohnpei allowing the export of sea cucumber (katop) by Chinese Company.
Hello, I'm a Boston-based journalist and I'm staying on Pohnpei until 8/26. I'm planning to write an article about the sea cucumber controversy - environmental, economic, how the potential Chinese contract will impact local harvesting and waters around Pohnpei, etc. I have
spotty wifi but will reply as quickly as possible. I'm especially interested in speaking with women, and/or families where women have harvested sea cucumbers, and the impact that the current situation has on them and their families. Thanks in advance. -Beth
