PT Tuna Permata Jaya Tuna and Large Pelagics Workplan
(1 January 2016 – 31 December 2016)
The tuna and large pelagicss PT Tuna Permata Jaya FIP focusing on yellowfin, bigeye and albacore tuna, swordfish, and mahi-mahi. The main improvement needs identified include: support the implementation of the National Tuna Fishery Management Plan, improved catch records, by species and each gear type, support a national onboard observer programme with the objective to improve catch recording, retained and bycatch data and support the national program on eliminating IUU, developing at sea traceability to meet future western import requirements and market demand.
Deploy 5 passive vessel tracking devices on off shore vessels. Test for low cost vessel traceability tracking and fishing pressure monitoring. Collaborate with the Global Fish Watch system for off shore data transfer.
Collaborate and share learnings with P.T. Intan Seafood around offshore tracking and fishing pressure mapping.
Share the logo for “Supporting Indonesia Fisheries” FIP demonstrating public linkage of traceability collaboration.
The FIP aims to support and contribute to the development of the improvement and sustainability of the tuna and large pelagics longline fishery in Indonesia. This FIP involves long liners operating in the Indian Ocean and Indonesia EEZ. The FIP steps are to start with some improvement measures, develop new tasks that support improvements, all of which will further the development of this basic FIP. The goal of this FIP is create change on the water.
