Jakarta (ANTARA) - President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) has expressed his belief that the application of modern aquaculture management in shrimp farming areas in Kebumen District, Central Java Province, could serve as an example for other regions in applying similar practices.
"Modern (aquaculture) management that we see today can be an example that can be emulated by other provinces and districts later," he remarked while inaugurating the Area-Based Shrimp Cultivation Ponds on Thursday.
He noted that a detailed management system was required for the shrimp farming business to support the production of ponds.
A detailed management system is implemented in whiteleg shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) cultivation ponds in Kebumen District, which is able to maintain the cleanliness of water to optimize the production of the commodity.
The president stated that every hectare of the facility is estimated to generate over 40 tons of shrimp.
The government is targeting to further develop the area to reach 100 hectares, with about 200 to 210 farming ponds.
Knowing where the fish that is served on the plate comes from, from the hook used, the transshipments, its processing and everything that involves its capture is important to establish measures to counteract illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing that threatens the biodiversity of the oceans.
This is how Maxine Burkett, US Assistant Secretary of State for Ocean, Fisheries and Polar Affairs, sees it, who in an interview with Bloomberg Línea revealed that the United States is reviewing its policies with a view to strengthening its requirements in fishing traceability to receive exports from America Latina.
In addition to climate change and its effects on ocean acidification, illegal fishing known as IUU, for its acronym in English, is one of the great concerns for the United States, since it is a threat to the health of the oceans.
Norway’s seafood industry passed a significant milestone in exporting more than NOK 150 billion (USD 14 billion, EUR 13.3 billion) worth of seafood in 2022, but it must strive to achieve much more alongside incorporating new methods, technologies, and species, according to Norwegian Minister of Fisheries and Ocean Policy Bjørnar Selnes Skjæran.
Speaking at the start of the North Atlantic Seafood Forum 2023 in Bergen, Norway on 8 March, Skjæran said the story of Norwegian seafood is one of continuous development.
