The One Million Sovereign Fishermen program will be prioritised, according to Indonesia’s Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, under the national program on the Indonesian Maritime Policy.
According to a recent report, the program aims to develop the country’s maritime sector and turn it into the world’s maritime axis.
Why turn to digitalisation?
Reportedly, Indonesia has enormous marine wealth. The data of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) for 2017 showed that the country’s marine wealth is worth US$ 2.5 trillion per year.
Vietnam’s exports of tra fish to the UK surged by nearly 70 percent in the first quarter of this year (Photo: thitruongthuysan.com) Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam’s tra fish exports to the UK in the first quarter increased by 69.5 percent to 11.9 million USD, according to the Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP). The exports mainly comprised frozen tra fillet, the most high-priced item at 5.3 USD per kilogramme.
Frozen tra fish steak exported to the UK also fetched high prices of 4.3-4.7 USD this quarter. The UK, the second largest market for Vietnam’s tra fish, is expected to remain a major buyer in Europe this year, according to VASEP. Its demand is expected to grow steadily and prices are likely to remain high this year, making it a attractive market for Vietnamese exporters. Vietnam is the sixth largest supplier of white meat to the UK after Iceland, China, Norway, Russia, and the Faroe Islands.
CLEVELAND - US aquaculture production is forecast to increase 2.1% annually in volume terms through 2022, according to Aquaculture: United States, a report recently released by Freedonia Focus Reports. The rising promotion of fish as part of a healthy diet will continue to increase demand for fish products.
However, because of the limited availability of space for new fish farms, increased domestic demand will have to be met through further intensification of farming methods on already densely populated fish farms or through imports. Also restraining growth in aquaculture production is the continued debate in the US regarding the benefits of farmed versus wild-caught fish.
A Chinese-flagged vessel is chased from Vietnamese waters for illegal fishing. Photo courtesy of the 1st Fisheries Resources Surveillance Force Vietnamese surveillance forces Sunday gave chase and drove away many foreign vessels trespassing its waters for illegal fishing. At around 10:30 a.m. Sunday, the 1st Fisheries Resources Surveillance Force based in the northern city of Hai Phong dispatched two patrol ships to stop the illegal fishing after spotting many foreign ships trespassing in the Gulf of Tonkin near Bach Long Vy Island. The fishing boats fled towards China. Among them are two steel-hulled vessels with Chinese flags.
The Vietnamese ships sped up and sprayed water cannons to drive the vessels away, even as Vietnamese officers issued warnings and ordered the Chinese fishermen to stop illegally fishing in Vietnamese waters. Vietnam repels Chinese vessels illegally fishing in its waters Vo Khoi Thanh, deputy head of the 1st Fisheries Resources Surveillance, said foreign steel-hull vessels, many of them from China, have been taking advantage of bad weather and poor visibility to trespass into Vietnamese waters for illegal fishing. “Though the Chinese-flagged fishing boats were chased from Vietnamese waters but they still could return. In order to protect Vietnam’s sovereignty, maritime territory and exclusive economic zone, Vietnamese surveillance ships have to increase patrolling of the waters,” Thanh said.

KAATUKUPPAM - After generations of trawling the same waters, the fishermen on the coast of Tamil Nadu in southeastern India know where to cast a net or park a boat without resorting to signs or GPS maps.
But their customary rights over this common space - a right won by families who have fished it for centuries - are under threat as the demands of modern life threaten age-old livelihoods and their once fertile habitat.
First, families’ land and precious sea access was usurped by factories and ports. Now, their rights are under fresh attack by a newly amended Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) law.
Since 2010 between 4.8 to 12.7 million metric tons of plastic pollution have been dumped into the world's oceans, and costs of the negative impacts have finally been added up. A new study published in Marine Pollution Bulletin states that the damages caused to fisheries, recreational activities, and global wellbeing could total up to a staggering CAD 2.5 trillion a year.
The comprehensive study reports that marine ecosystem services, such as providing food for humans and storing large amounts of carbon dioxide, have added up to CAD 49.7 trillion per year since 2011. Findings indicate that plastic pollution harms the productivity of these services and causes a decline between 1 to 5 per cent in marine ecosystem service delivery, which is equal to an annual loss of CAD 500 billion to CAD 2.5 trillion.
Commercial fishing boats on the B.C. coast have returned to their home ports after a successful spring herring roe fishery in the Strait of Georgia off Vancouver Island, but opponents of the catch are already gearing up for next season.
The threat of overfishing and the impact a herring population collapse could have on British Columbia’s marine ecosystem, particularly chinook salmon and southern resident killer whales, has conservation, environmental and some Indigenous groups demanding an indefinite suspension of the fishery.
“It’s just a matter of time before the Strait of Georgia herring collapses and all those boats are forced to wait at the dock,” said Ian McAllister, executive director of Pacific Wild, which called for the suspension of the roe herring fishery this year.
