Overview

The Maros Regency blue swimming crab trap FIP has been initiated as a supply chain driven project and is unique in this perspective.  By recording accurate daily catch data from the fishers, the FIP is able to track the health of the fishery over time and by knowing the health of the fishery, FIP stakeholders can exert influence on improving the fishery, the community, and the quality of the product. The Maros Regency Blue Swimming Crab FIP is endeavoring to engage all stakeholders in the fishery, including other industry members, government entities, and academia to expand the scope and depth of this project.
