Fish & Seafood

Indonesia is one of the largest fishing nations in the world and has for decades been the country with the largest seaweed cultivation. Indonesian seaweed farmers and entrepreneurs have special expertise in harvesting seaweed, which is then processed to become value-added products from hydrocolloids such as carrageenan and agar. This industry benefits communities living along Indonesia’s 81,000km of coastline by providing alternative income-generating jobs and reducing illegal fishing.

SIPPO supports the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries of the Republic of Indonesia to further develop their export promotion capabilities, so that  fish and seafood from producers who apply good fisheries farming practices can reach global markets
