July 16, 2022, APRI carried out the “APRI 2nd Quarterly Meeting” activity, a routine activity carried out by APRI every quarter of the year and was successfully carried out online and offline. The offline activities were held at the VASA Hotel Surabaya.

Mr. Ir. Kuncoro Catur Nugroho M.M as the Chair of APRI conveyed related to the organizational structure of APRI and several important matters regarding the crab fishing industry in terms of ABGCM (Academic-Business- Government-Community-Media). Not only there, Mr. Kuncoro also briefly presented several APRI activities during Q2.

Prof. Abdul Ghafar, a representative from the NFI Crab Council, also provided a lot of insight into APRI and conveyed some important information related to FIP related to social responsibility and key activities programs related to crab fisheries. On this Q2 opportunity, APRI also presented one of the resource persons, namely Dr. Ir. Sri Redjeki, M.Si from Diponegoro University (UNDIP) related to the survey of crab larvae in supporting the management of crab fisheries. He has also made several observations or research related to crab fisheries.

Dr. Ayu Ervinia as Executive and Research Director of APRI explained the development of the FIP carried out by APRI as well as the new spirit in the management of crab fisheries after receiving an appreciation from MSC. In the development of the FIP, APRI has improved in several indicators and will continue to maintain the indicators that are already good. Dr. Ayu Ervinia also explained related to the study of crab fishery stocks in 10 data collection locations as well as APRI’s activity programs that have been carried out in Q2.

The next activity was the presentation by M. Bagus Satria as General Manager for FIP Implementation explained regarding important information on the SIMP (Seafood Import Monitoring Program) and MMPA (Marine Mammals Protection Act). These activities are also important in the sustainability of the crab fishery industry. Regarding MMPA, APRI has conducted research activities with mammal experts such as with CETASI and hopes that in the future APRI, which is included in the MMPA Team, can contribute to the crab fishery.

Closing activities were several presentations related to the 4.5 inch net program and APRI Youth Innovation which were presented by several APRI staff. This activity became a new face in this Q2 meeting.
