Fisheries and marine conservation initiatives in Indonesia primarily focus on management of specific species, national and subnational level fisheries policy, and Marine Protected Areas. While such initiatives often use a mix of scientific and socio-economic approaches, economic tools and analysis tend to be underutilized.

Accelerating fisheries reform through economic analysis and capacity building for Indonesian Fisheries Management Areas

In recent years, Indonesia’s Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) has made bold moves towards fisheries policy reform. Efforts to improve national fisheries management have included combating illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities, and bans on destructive fishing gear within Indonesian Fisheries Management Areas (FMAs).

CSF is working with MMAF to develop a coherent national strategy for a sustainable fisheries management, including access, inputs, and output controls, that will maximize the value of Indonesia’s fishery resources.

Specifically, our role includes:

In coordination with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) of Indonesia and the Indonesian Marine and Fisheries Socio-Economic Research Network (IMFISERN), CSF held two events to support the use of scientific research in developing Indonesia’s marine and fisheries sector.

Cost-Benefit Analysis for the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area, Peru

In partnership with Oceana, CSF conducted a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for the creation of the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area (NRMPA) located off the coast of central Peru. The CBA estimated the benefits from the creation of the proposed MPA and compared these with costs associated with managing and others resulting from the establishment of the MPA. Roughly 100 kilometers offshore, NRMPA has the potential to be an important icon for marine conservation in Peru and globally while also protecting a source of marine wildlife and resources from future overfishing and pollution threats.
