Indonesian Government, through the Fishery and Maritime Ministry, has launched three pilot sites of offshore aquaculture to breed barramundi and sea bass in Aceh and Central Java provinces, on Java Island.

The Ministry’s Secretary of Aquaculture Directorate General Tri Hariyanto made the announcement at a seminar held by Indonesian Council on World Affairs (ICWA) and Taipei Economic and Trade Office in Indonesia (TETO), where he explained that although Indonesia has vast waters, stretching from the islands of Sumatra and Papua, the offshore technology has not been optimized in the aquaculture sector, Antara News reported.

The secretary pointed out that during its initial project, the offshore aquaculture development has adopted the technology practised in Norway to breed salmon and expected that it can be used to farm some coral fish species, such as barramundi and sea bass.

"We hope that we could add the number (of the offshore aquaculture sites) in the future, but we still have to wait for at least one year," he remarked.

The official recognised the existence of challenges in the aquaculture sector, such as environmental issues, including climate change, the over-carrying capacity in terms of production as well as some threats from virus and other diseases.

Opened by the TETO representative in Jakarta, John C. Chen, the seminar was an effort by Indonesia and Taiwan to seek some potentials in the aquaculture and marine sectors.

"We try to explore any possibilities of joint venture to invest in the aquaculture sector in Indonesia," Chen noted.

"However, we have not yet set a concrete program, because it has to be discussed earlier with the officials. I believe some meetings with Indonesian ministries and other agencies would be necessary to optimize our cooperation in the fishery and maritime sectors," he revealed.

Chen highlighted that Indonesia and Taiwan shared a similar vision in strengthening the marine and fishery resources.
