Operation Solania is the Australian Defence Force (ADF) contribution to regional security in partnership with the Pacific Island nations.
It also supports Operations Kuru Kuru, Island Chief, Tui Moana and Rai Balang, which are coordinated maritime surveillance and patrol operations run by the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA), to detect and deter illegal, unregulated and unreported fishing activities.
The ADF’s contribution consists of Royal Australian Air Force B300 King Air and C-27J Spartan aircraft and the Royal Australian Navy ship HMAS Maryborough.
