APRI Q4 End-Year Meeting, held on December 19, 2021, this is a routine quarterly activity which was attended by all APRI members, staff, APRI Enumerators, and 2 observers from PT. Jala Crab International and PT. Java Kayana Segara. This activity is a year-end meeting as well as to welcome the challenges in 2022 which are only days away. This activity was quite interesting with the topic of discussing the latest issues in crab fisheries as well as updating the development of the FIP (Fishery Improvement Project) and programs for activities in the coming year. In addition, the target in making the crab fishery ecolabel certified is also continuously updated with APRI members.

Mr. Ir. Kuncoro as a APRI chairman said that the progress of APRI in the last 3 months. In this APRI, there are 2 things that cannot be separated, namely the crab industry/business sector and the sustainability of the crab fishery. Some time ago we received a proposal for financing and it is still being discussed. As soon as we have discussed this, we will convey and refine the results so that they can be used for the sustainability of the crab fishery. APRI has produced a lot of positive things. NFI Crab Council has a long term commitment to APRI. In the future, we will continue to work together for the sustainability of this crab industry. Sustainability is a general concept not only in fisheries but also in the field of trade. East Java is a pilot project for crab management and is also a strategic area said Abdul Ghofar as a NFI Crab Council representative.

Dr. Hawis Madduppa as Executive Director APRI said from 2018 to 2020 the number of mini-plans continues to increase and we are currently conducting a census to update the mini-plan data for 2021. What we are doing to support the crab industry is by holding several activities and MSC Progress APRI is in the “In Transition to MSC” stage. APRI will continue its activities to support the crab fishing industry, including: improving stock assessments, Indonesian BSC management, ecological impacts on species, conducting habitat and ecosystem impact studies, governance and policies, and fisheries specific management systems.This SPR-based APRI data collection can later be included in the law as reference data to see the crab fishery stock.

We would also like to thank all APRI members who continue to play an active role and are committed to making a positive impact on crab fisheries in Indonesia.
