PREDOMINANT PRODUCTION SYSTEM

Extend MMAF’s Action Plans concerning active and passive surveillance of major shrimp diseases to include South Sumatra.
Implement Aquaculture Improvement Projects (AIPs) to further the adoption of zonal management practices and approaches. The AIP in East Java can be used as a model for future projects.
Encourage feed companies to publicly disclose source fisheries (for example, via annual reports or sustainability reports, regularly updated websites, or via initiatives such as the Ocean Disclosure Project) and, where necessary, initiate Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs).
Encourage the government & industry to improve the availability and quality of data on the shrimp aquaculture industry (particularly disease outbreaks and survival, water quality, and the number of farms).
Support the licensing/registration of small-scale farmers and the development of improved support facilities for farmers (e.g. laboratories, reliable suppliers, etc.)
The industry should resolve who is responsible for the implementation of the CBIB - Good Aquaculture Practice standards in order to continue promoting their uptake by farmers. Ongoing discussions between the government [the MMAF and the Directorate General of Aquaculture (DGA)] and the shrimp industry on this matter should be supported.
Continue to develop and expand the Aquaculture Improvement Project (AIP) model in Muncar – and encourage its establishment with other branches of SCI and MMAF nationwide to support further collaboration and promotion of zonal management practices and approaches.
In FishSource, information on aquaculture management is displayed at the highest resolution unit for which data is available. Ideally, information would simply be structured around an aquaculture management area (AMA) – the primary unit within which aquaculture management practices should be coordinated across a group of farms to mitigate against cumulative impacts and shared risks. Although AMAs are sometimes recognized in industry strategy and regulatory documents, they are not yet established across all aquaculture industries; so, we typically display information at the province/state level.
