Field visits were carried out on 20-21 April 2021 in Gebang Mekar village and Bondet village, Cirebon Regency in order to comply with the export regulations for fishery products to the United States (US), especially the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) – List of Foreign Fisheries. This visit was aimed at confirming the collected data and adding field information such as Bycatch, the practice of small scale fisheries, and other documentation related to the characteristics of blue swimming crab fisheries with traps and gillnet fishing gear for submitting comparability finding related to MMPA.

The MMPA regulations aim to reduce marine mammal bycatch associated with commercial fishing, establish procedures for states to obtain authorization to import fish and fish products into the United States and evaluate programs to reduce marine mammal bycatch.

Kursan’s warehouse.
