Indonesia Central Java white prawn - trammel net and trap

Primary tabs

Overview

The white shrimp fishery in Central Java has been engaged in Fishery Improvement Projects since 2017 in collaboration with WWF-Indonesia under the Seafood Savers program. The program is also supported by Diponegoro University (UNDIP) as an academic entity, PUSRISKAN as the scientific authority, and other related stakeholders in the area.

The fishery is located in the Wedung area, Demak, in the Central Java of Indonesia, and part of FMA 712. Fishers in the supply chain use two methods to catch the white shrimp, trammel nets and traps. The fishing areas are next to the village and within 10 miles from the shore.

PT. Cassanatama also encouraged its suppliers to implement responsible and sustainable fishing practices and has written agreements with those suppliers as the proof of their commitments.
