Fishery conditions in Indonesia is ironic. The reason, in the midst of large market needs, Indonesia is still import a lot of technology to catch fish from abroad.
"In fact, if it is examined more deeply to catch fish and perform fish financing, it is easy to make," said Dr. Ir. Rokhmin Dahuri, MS on a national discussion entitled "Warisan Ir.H.Juanda, Development Solutions of Archipelago".
In the event held to commemorate Nusantara Day by Department of Fisheries Students Association (HMJ) of Fisheries University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) in cooperation with Fisheries Student Association of Indonesia (Himapikani) Rokhmin delivered his speech.
According to him, currently most Indonesian people consume animal protein derived from fish. Unfortunately, this is not matched by the availability of technology for adequate fishing.
"According to the data, 65 percent of animal protein consumed by society in Indonesia is not derived from terrestrial animals, but from fish," Rokhmin explained, Wednesday (13/12).
In addition to Rokhmin, this national discussion was also attended by various stakeholders from world of fisheries in Indonesia, including professors Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences Bogor Agricultural University (FPIK-IPB), Prof. Dr. Ir. H. Ari Purbayanto, M.Sc., Secretary General of Nusantara Fishery Community, Nimmi Zulbainarni, Chairman of the Indonesian Fishermen Alliance (ANNI), Riyono S.Kel, M.Si, and fisherman figures from Pati and Rembang.
Dean of Faculty of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry (FPP) of UMM, Dr. Ir. David Hermawan, MP, welcomed this discussion. In addition to providing solutions for fisheries in Indonesia, he also hoped this discussion could provide insight to students of fisheries courses.
"I hope this kind of discussion can also provide a good academic atmosphere for faculty, especially for Fisheries Studies Program of UMM," he said.
