The Royal Australian Navy HMAS Leeuwin has completed conducting its first sea bed mapping in the country.
The exercise included mapping the approaches to Rotuma and its surrounding waters.
Australian Navy Marine Geo-Special Officer Lieutenant Mitchell Kerr says during their 10-day survey, they have found that there is room for the Oinafa Wharf to be expanded.
“We conducted survey at Oinafa wharf and we got a depth a range from 4-7 meters in that area and we surveyed around the other side where the old boat passage was and that was deemed unsuitable so their future expansion of the wharf is most likely going to be the expansion of the Oinafa wharf."
A similar survey was conducted in Lautoka where the results showed the possibility of the city having another wharf.
