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.

The FIP hopes to achieve the following objectives by April 2026:
- Implement FIP Action plan in order to prepare the fisheries entering the MSC Full Assessment
- Provide better information on the stock status of the fishery
- Provide information on the environmental impact of the use of trammel nets and pots/traps in Central Java by collecting information on the catch composition, primary and secondary species, bycatch, and ETP interaction if there is any
- Develop a fishery management plan specific to the shrimp fishery
