Indonesia snapper and grouper - bottom longline, dropline, trap, and gillnet (ADI)

Primary tabs


The national-level Indonesia Snapper Grouper FIP led by ADI will merge three site-level basic snapper-grouper FIPs (Aru, Makassar Strait, and Java Sea) and is aiming to develop solutions for snapper and grouper fishery management and other issues that can only be addressed effectively at the national level and thus will support the work of existing FIPs.

This FIP will be a comprehensive FIP and will address the objectives originally outlined in three basic FIPs as well as additional issues identified in the MSC Pre-Assessment produced by The Nature Conservancy to support the TNC Indonesia deepwater groundfish - dropline, longline, trap and gillnet FIP.   The ADI-led Indonesia Snapper Grouper FIP is aligned and a complementary effort to the TNC-led snapper grouper FIP.

This FIP will focus on six snapper species (Lutjanus malabaricus, L. eryphtropterus, L. sebae, Pristipmoides multidens, P. typus and Pinjalo pinjalo) and 10 grouper species caught in Indonesian Waters (WPPs) using bottom longline, drop line, trap and gillnet.


FIP Description 

The national-level Indonesia Snapper Grouper FIP led by ADI will merge three site-level basic snapper-grouper FIPs (Aru, Makassar Strait, and Java Sea) and is aiming to develop solutions for snapper and grouper fishery management and other issues

FIP Objective(s) 

The FIP objectives:

  1. To work with the government and researchers to analyze the data and make judgments about fishery/species status and management actions required to improve that especially for the important/priority species (by June 2025).
  2. To improve the availability of catch/production data for both artisanal and industrial fisheries through better reporting by industries to contribute to harvest strategy development and monitoring (by June 2025).
  3. To work with government and other stakeholders to seek stock rebuilding plan for the important/priority species including work with both export market and domestic supply chain to shift consumer preference to larger fish or portion cuts and other limits (by June 2025).
  4. To contribute to the consultation and discussion process with the government, researchers and other stakeholders about the need for and form of secondary and ETP species management arrangement (by June 2025).
  5. To collect information on shark catch data and possibility for shark finning at sea to ensure compliance to shark finning policy (by June 2025).
  6. To contribute in the process to develop Harvest Strategy and set out explicit and fishery specific objectives within the National Snapper Grouper Management Plan, which makes reference to specific actions relevant to each fishing gears (by June 2025)
  7. To improve the compliance related to logbook submission, fishing licenses and boat registration for small boats (boats < 10 GT) (by June 2025).
  8. To engage industry on provincial and national level policy development, including with the Consultative Panel of WPP Fisheries Management Council (by June 2025).
