Meet Future Fishermen from Pamekasan

by March 28, 2022 0 comments

Pamekasan is one of the districts in Madura with the potential for crab fisheries, located in the FMA 712 Pamekasan area where the MSC assessment area is located. APRI has also started to collect data through enumerators in the Pamekasan area, as well as APRI has placed Community Development in the Pamekasan area, to be precise in Pagagan village.

It is the role of APRI’s Co-Management (Community Development) that provides an overview of what sustainability is and its benefits, KUB Berkah Capit Biru is one of the fishermen groups who understand very well about sustainability. Suparman, one of the leaders of the KUB Berkah Capit Biru group, often meets with the government, and even his videos reach foreign countries through MSC’s Fish for Goods program, which participated in a film festival in Singapore and was covered by the Dutch media.

Suparman and his group have learned a lot about the benefits of catching using environmentally friendly fishing gear, they also don’t want to keep catching crabs so they are trying to develop crab apartments, grow crabs and this is where the role of APRI and the local government is to help fishermen in sustainable fisheries improvement.

KUB Berkah Capit Biru includes fishermen assisted by APRI who are quite active in carrying out the #GTK5Minit program where the fishermen are very aware of the impacts and risks if they catch small crabs and lay eggs outside the local government’s PERDES.

Coinciding with the Monev MSC together with the TPOA team, APRI had the opportunity to meet with fishermen from the future where they have progressed far from only catching but starting to look for solutions to problems and other alternatives such as the Berkah Capit Biru Fisherman Shop which has been running until now. Their understanding of sustainable fisheries is also quite good with the presence of APRI Enumerators and APRI CO-Management.
