Thank you to the Roviana and Marovo communities that supported and participated in this work. Graham Curwen provided invaluable support and troubleshooting in the field. KA was partially funded by the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems and the CGAIR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security. This research would not have been possible without the financial support of the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency within the Australian government.
