Technology innovations towards sustainability in Indonesia's tuna supply chains


Informational uncertainties in the western and central Pacific Ocean tuna fisheries threaten the sustainability of tuna stocks and the livelihoods of fishing communities. This is especially true in Indonesia, where a high reliance on tuna for domestic fish consumption coupled with large tuna exports and disparate and disaggregated management means that fishing pressure will likely continue to increase in order to meet domestic and export demand. The ability of these tuna fisheries to support livelihoods, appetites and businesses relies in part on the extent to which information is provided by and communicated to fishermen and processors in Indonesia. In response, this project will develop a traceability-based technology (TBT) platform that creates bidirectional information exchange between Indonesian fishermen, processors and traders, helping to link fishermen with fisheries information and global markets, and helping processors and traders to meet informational requirements originating from importing regions.
