FIP Objective(s) 

• The Jepara Regency Blue Swimming Crab FIP in Central Java, Indonesia serves as a catalyst for further stakeholder participation with a goal of adding NGO and Government participants by the middle of 2017 and other industry stakeholders, including fishermen by the end of 2017.  

• Continue to grow laterally from the current vertically integrated Harbor Seafood supply chain. It is the collaboration of all fishery stakeholders that offers the best opportunity for a successful and expanded FIP, to this end, it is the goal to add two more r/c plants in Jepara town by 2018.

• Change gear type from gillnet to traps with escapes for undersize crabs by 2018 for fishermen in the Harbor Seafood/ KBT supply chain.

• Significantly decrease the amount of illegal crab caught in the fishery by 2018 and end all illegal crab landing by 2019.
