Overview

Reason for Inactivity 
Lack of stakeholder support

The Jepara Regency Blue Swimming Crab FIP was initiated as a supply chain driven project with a crab processor, cook station operators, and a group of crab fishers with the goal of ensuring compliance with national regulation, sustainability of the fishery, and continual livelihoods for the crab fishers. The target stock is blue swimming crab (Portunus pelagicus) which is caught with lines of gillnets on the sea floor up to 40km from shore and the crab fishing fleet involved in this FIP comprises the fishers in the Jepara Regency, Central Java, Indonesia.

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.
