Indonesia Saleh Bay snapper and grouper - bottom longline and handline

Primary tabs

Overview

Groupers and snappers are considered important fisheries commodities in Indonesia, both ecologically and economically. These fish are generally caught by small-scale fishers that operate in nearby reefs, thus undertaking sustainable grouper and snapper fisheries is of paramount importance for their continuous supply. As one of the important sites for grouper and snapper fisheries nationwide, in 2018 the West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) Province enacted a sustainable grouper and snapper management through a Governor Decree, particularly for the Saleh Bay area. Since then, monitoring and evaluation have been conducted to ensure the management plan for snapper and grouper achieved its target. From the monitoring, it is known that two main species have dominated the fishery and became the export commodities, i.e. Malabar blood snapper (Lutjanus malabaricus) and Leopard grouper (Plectropomus leopardus) which are caught by Handline and Bottom Longline.

The grouper and snapper fisheries management in Saleh Bay has also included several regulations, such as minimum legal size, hook and mesh size, and integration with MPA management. Since the fishery targeted two species that are small-scale, the fishers are not subject to license and permit, they only need to register their boats with the government. To ensure its sustainability along with market value, the FIP will address the rebuilding stock strategy, draft harvest control rules, and (partially) manage the habitat/ecosystem (e.g. through MPA management effectiveness improvement).

FIP Description 

Groupers and snappers are considered important fisheries commodities in Indonesia, both ecologically and economically.

FIP Objective(s) 

By December 2024, this FIP aims to 

  1. Develop and partially implement a stock rebuilding strategy (based on the Management Strategy Evaluation/MSE framework and fisheries management modeling);
  2. Propose and draft harvest control rules; 
  3. Map and partially manage habitat/ecosystem, and
  4. Combat destructive and unsustainable fishing practices.
