About the Event
Demersal fish, particularly snapper and grouper, are a noteworthy commodity because of their high selling value. Not only do demersal fisheries ensure small fishers’ welfare, they also revive the national economy. For this reason, snapper and grouper fisheries need to be part of the fishing concept drafting which is currently a serious concern of the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries in order to achieve sustainable fisheries. Demersal fisheries are dominated by small-scale business actors, and this needs to be a concern of all stakeholders because their operational activities have not been properly recorded and reported to the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries.
Against this backdrop, the Directorate of Fish Resources Management in collaboration with the Tropical Landscapes Finance Facility (TLFF), The Nature Conservancy in Indonesia (YKAN), and the Indonesian Demersal Association (ADI) is organizing a technical workshop entitled “Optimizing the E-Log Book App to Support the Achievement of Measurable Fishery Management”. This workshop aims to develop an integrated fishery data collection and formulate a roadmap, management strategy and a collaborative plan in support of demersal fishery management.
