USAID Oceans

IPNLF and the USAID Oceans and Fisheries Partnership (USAID Oceans) announced their partnership in May 2017, designed to develop and implement a financially sustainable catch documentation and traceability (CDT) system that will integrate with existing government and industry systems in Indonesia's pole-and-line and handline tuna fisheries. USAID Oceans works to strengthen regional cooperation to combat illegal, unreported and unregualted fishing, promote sustainable fisheries and conserve marine biodiversity in the Asia-Pacific region.

Through this partnership, IPNLF will engage its Members and networks to build awareness and support in key export markets for implementation of the CDT system and sustainable fisheries management in Indonesia. USAID Oceans and IPNLF are also working closely to develop an Indonesian Coastal Tuna Sustainability Alliance that will support the coordination and scaling of various traceability and sustainable fisheries management initiatives in Indonesia.
