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:

Fisheries Management Area 711 Training

In 2010, Indonesia was divided into eleven Fisheries Management Areas (FMA) by the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF). The FMA were selected based on their fish resources and biophysical environments, and include capture fisheries, aquaculture, conservation, research, and fisheries development activities. FMA 711, which encompasses the Karimata Strait, Natuna Sea, and the South China Sea, is a strategic fishing ground in Indonesia, with an estimated fishery potential of 1.1 million tons/year, or 11% of the total catch for the country. Six provinces are part of this FMA: Riau, Bangka Belitung, South Sumatra, Jambi, Riau Islands, and West Kalimantan.
