HONIARA, Solomon Islands (June 1, 1999 - Radio Australia)---A second tuna cannery is to be developed in the Solomon Islands.

Fisheries Minister Dr. Steve Aumanu says it will be built at Bina Harbour in Malaita Province by a joint venture between a Spanish company and the Malaita Provincial government.

He says the Spanish company has been allowed to invest in Solomon Islands to acknowledge the state's continuing assistance through the European Commission.

Dr. Aumanu said the government expects fishing companies to harvest the tuna in a sustainable manner.
