Pearl farming has the potential to offer unique opportunities in terms of livelihoods and marine conservation in the Pacific region. This tea presents a research project that will examine how the black cultured pearl supply chain and consumers could further support these positive environmental and socio-economic benefits and promote responsible pearl farming. The work is in collaboration with pearl farmers and other partners in Switzerland, Japan, the US and the Pacific region. This website (http://www.sustainablepearls.org/pearls/pearl-types/black-cultured-pearls/) aims to inform about different pearl types, ecological and socio-economic dimensions of pearl farming and to share resources and findings on these themes.
