For a small really out of the way dot in the middle of the Pacific Ocean there are some really good places to eat. The fresh seafood the claims, the crabs!!

Lets start with Frank K’s owned by Katina Peter and you can taste some local fare and who would not like to try Marshallese food when in the Marshalls and this place is as good as it gets with a wide range of local food.

So try some Jukjuk or coconut and banana balls or Banke kalel local pumpkin cooked in coconut milk very tasty with baked fresh reef fish cooked in banana leaves. Another local favorite is mã which is cooked breadfruit in a coconut milk sauce this dish goes down well with local Island roosted piglet - you guessed it based in coconut milk. One more thing if you don’t like coconut you are in trouble in the Marshalls.

About Marshall Islands 

From Honolulu, Continental Micronesia flies three times a week with their Island Hopper service, which starts in Honolulu, ends in Guam and then returns to Honolulu along the same route.

 Why not plan a Micronesian tour with the Marshalls Islands as your first stop?

Dive gear, although rental gear is available. Dress is casual. The U.S. dollar is the standard currency. U.S. citizens need only a passport ( no visa). The average temperature is 82 degrees Fahrenheit, so t-shirts and shorts are derigeur.

The summer months (May-September) are generally the warmest and when the seas are
at their calmest. The winter months, although breezier, remain warm and comfortable with water temperature remaining in the 80-degree range.

During the period from June 30, 1946, to August 18, 1958, the United States conducted 67 atmospheric nuclear tests in the Marshall Islands, 43 at Enewetak Atoll, 23 at Bikini Atoll, and one approximately 85 miles from Enewetak. The most powerful of those tests was the "Bravo" shot, a 15 megaton device detonated on March 1, 1954, at Bikini atoll. That test alone was equivalent to 1,000 Hiroshima bombs.

While the Bravo test is well known, it should be acknowledged that 17 other tests in the Marshall Islands were in the megaton range and the total yield of the 67 tests was 108 megatons, the equivalent of more than 7,000 Hiroshima bombs.

For the sake of comparison, it may be noted that from 1945 to 1988, the U.S. conducted a total of 930 known nuclear tests with a combined yield estimated to be 174 megatons. Approximately 137 megatons of that total was detonated in the atmosphere. In other words, while the number of tests conducted in the Marshall Islands represents only about 14% of all U.S. tests, the yield of the tests in the Marshalls comprised nearly 80% of the atmospheric total detonated by the U.S.

In June 1983, a formal Agreement Between the Government of the United States and the Government of the Marshall Islands for the Implementation of Section 177 of the Compact of Free Association was entered into (Section 177 Agreement). In that agreement, the U.S. recognized the contributions and sacrifices made by the people of the Marshall Islands in regard to the Nuclear Testing Program and accepted the responsibility for compensation owing to citizens of the Marshall Islands for loss or damage to property and person resulting from that testing.

Under the 177 Agreement, the United States provided to the Marshall Islands the sum of $150 million as a financial settlement for the damages caused by the nuclear testing program. That money was used to create a fund intended to generate $270 million for distribution over a 15 year period with average annual proceeds of  approximately $18 million per year through the year 2001. These funds were distributed among the peoples of Bikini, Enewetak, Rongelap, Utrik, for medical and radiological monitoring, and the payment of claims.

The 177 Agreement also provided for the establishment of a Claims Tribunal with jurisdiction to "render final determination upon all claims past, present and future, of the Government, citizens and nationals of the Marshall Islands which are based on, arise out of, or are in any way related to the Nuclear Testing Program."

The Marshall Islands Nuclear Claims Tribunal was established in 1988.  In 1991, the Tribunal first implemented a compensation program for personal injuries deemed to have resulted from the nuclear testing program.  By the end of 2003, the Tribunal had awarded more than $83 million in compensation for such injuries with additional compensable claims being filed on a regular basis.  In addition, the Tribunal has awarded over $1 billion in property damage awards in the class actions of the people of Enewetak Atoll and the people of Bikini Atoll. The pending property claims from the peoples of Rongelap and Utrik Atolls near completion, while the people of Ailuk Atoll have recently filed a class action claim for compensation.  

With only $45.75 million made available for actual payment of awards made by the Tribunal during the first fifteen years of the Compact and less than $6 million of the initial $150 million now remaining in the Nuclear Claims Fund, it has become clear that the original terms of the settlement agreement are manifestly inadequate.
