Vitamins and Minerals Contains in Fish


Fish contain a number of vitamins and minerals that also prove essential for good health. Here are vitamins and minerals contains in fish as written in livestrong.com

 

Vitamin D

Fish contain vitamin D. Although cells within your skin can synthesize vitamin D upon exposure to sunlight, individuals with limited sun exposure due to lifestyle factors, or those that live in high-latitude climates, may also require vitamin D from food sources. In the body, vitamin D aids in the maintenance of healthy bones by regulating calcium -- a key component of mineralized tissue. The Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, salmon, mackerel and sardines contain vitamin D. Including these types of fish in your diet may help prevent a vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin A

Some types of fish also contain vitamin A, or retinol. This fat-soluble vitamin is typically found dissolved in the oils within the fish meat, and fish oil supplements provide a rich source of the vitamin. The Linus Pauling Institute indicates that 1 tsp. of cod liver oil -- a common fish oil supplement -- contains a full day's worth of vitamin A, and other fish, including salmon, also boosts your vitamin A intake. Consuming enough vitamin A proves important for maintaining the health of several tissues, since vitamin A deficiency can cause dry, scaly skin, or even blindness and immunodeficiency. Consuming fatty fish or fish oils can help prevent this deficiency and support your good health.

Calcium

Fish contains calcium, the most abundant mineral in your body. The majority of the calcium in your body is found as hydroxyapatite -- the hard mineral that provides strength to your teeth and bones. Other calcium in your body aids in cellular signaling, used to support proper cellular functioning and also aids in the conduction of electrochemical nerve impulses. Calcium is found in a number of shellfish, including crab, lobster and shrimp, according to Bayer Health Care.

Magnesium

Magnesium represents another type of essential mineral found in fish. Magnesium in the body works together with calcium to form the minerals that make up your bones. In addition, magnesium aids in proper muscle functioning, maintaining the health of your heart, and may prevent the development of type 2 diabetes, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Fish rich in magnesium include cod, salmon, halibut and mackerel, so including these foods into your diet may prove beneficial for your health.

Baking Frozen Tuna Steak


Frozen tuna, providing it was frozen at sea, is often better than fresh tuna steaks, which can be 7 to 10 days old when you buy it at the store. Tuna is a large oily fish with a strong flavor and meaty flesh, well-suited to being served as a thick steak. Cover and bake frozen or defrosted tuna steaks rapidly at a high temperature to prevent drying out during the cooking process. Ensure the fish is thoroughly cooked before serving by testing the internal temperature with a meat thermometer.

 

Defrosting

The U. S. Food and Drug Administration says if you defrost frozen tuna before baking, you should thaw the fish in a refrigerator overnight. Never leave fish to defrost on a countertop or anywhere at room temperature. When raw fish is exposed to warm air, bacteria and food-borne pathogens multiply, increasing the possibility of food poisoning. The Cook's Thesaurus says perishable food left out for more than two hours at 40 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit is regarded as unsafe to eat.

Preparation

Wash your hands with soap and water before and after handling raw fish to prevent contamination of other food items, and clean surfaces after using them to prepare raw food and before preparing other ingredients. BBC GoodFood advises against washing tuna before use and recommends that you simply pat it dry with clean paper towels before using it in a recipe.

Baking a Defrosted Tuna Steak

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place the tuna steak on a piece of aluminum foil and season to taste with salt, pepper or a selection of herbs. Wrap the foil into a loose parcel and place in the middle of the oven, directly on the shelf. Bake for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. Remove the foil parcel from the oven and ensure the tuna is cooked before serving. The flesh should be opaque and flake easily when pressed with a sharp knife.

Cooking a Frozen Tuna Steak

Allow extra cooking time if you bake a frozen tuna steak. Ensure the fish is thoroughly cooked by testing the internal temperature of the tuna steak with a meat thermometer. Properly cooked tuna should be 145 degrees Fahrenheit at its thickest point.

Freshwater Fishes which High in Nutrition


Fish contain various kinds of nutrients that are good for health and growth. Not only the sea water fish that usually found in the market, freshwater fish that generally live in rivers and lakes also have equally good nutritional content. Nutrition of freshwater fish can be obtained from Tilapia or Parrot Fish, Snapper, freshwater sardines, catfish, and various other fresh fish. Omega 3 fatty acids, protein, selenium, vitamin D in fish are very good for the body because of the low saturated fat content.

 

In Indonesia, freshwater fish that are commonly used as a daily menu are as follows:

 

1. Parrot Fish

 

Tilapia is the main choice especially for those of you who do not like fish that smells fishy. Tilapia is also easy to process and has a savory flavor. It also contains vitamin B12, an important compound for maintaining energy in the body, protein, mineral, and other vitamin content. Therefore, tilapia is also good for those who are sick or elderly who are at risk of heart disease, cholesterol and high blood pressure.

 

2. Snapper

Snapper (Nile Perch) generally has a large size so it is available in the form of fillets or steaks. Although large, the texture is very soft and easy to digest. This fish is also the best source of omega 3 fatty acids.

 

3. Freshwater Sardines

Small-sized freshwater sardines are silver with a unique taste. Sometimes these sardines are served in dry form and consumed in whole form. This fish contains vitamins A, B, and B complex, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. This content is good for the development of the child's teeth and bones and supports the health of pregnant women.

 

4. Catfish

Catfish are the most famous and easiest to find freshwater fish in Indonesia. This fish contains many nutrients such as protein, fat, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin A, sodium, and iron. This fish also has a low mercury level so it is safe for pregnant women to consume.

The point is that various types of fish and other fish are good and safe for consumption as long as you know how to process them correctly.

Those of you who are hesitant about eating fish because they are concerned about the harmful ingredients in fish such as mercury, you should recognize the content of the fish you want to consume first. Catfish, tilapia, sardines, salmon, squid, or anchovy, for example, are fish species that are low in mercury.

No less important, be sure to eat fish in fresh conditions that can be examined from the texture of the meat, the shape of the eyes, and the color of the gills. Come smart to choose consumption fish and let's be healthy together.

Export Expansion of Fishery Products Expected to Obtain CAD


The Indonesian fisheries industry is expected to be able to increase exports to help reduce the current account deficit (CAD), which in the third quarter had formed 3.37 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This was stated by the Minister of National Development Planning or Head of the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) Bambang Brodjonegoro.

 

 

Minister Bambang argues that if fishery product exports continue to be increased, it will help cover the trade deficit. He gave an example of Thailand, a neighboring country that has a surplus of CAD due to the high export of food and beverage ingredients. So according to him, not only through the oil and gas trade, the fisheries sector can also have a huge influence.

According to Minister Bambang, the decline in the performance of the trade balance was mainly influenced by the increase in the oil and gas trade balance deficit, while the increase in the surplus in the non-oil and gas trade balance was relatively limited due to high imports due to strong domestic demand.

In the case of the current account deficit, Minister Bambang said, the maritime and fisheries sector could directly help reduce its trade deficit by increasing exports.

"Our fisheries export potential is still very large, especially for fresh fish exports," he said.

He believes, in the long run the Indonesian economy still has a large opportunity to grow, this is indicated by the demographic bonus in 2030.

Bambang hopes that besides helping to reduce the current account deficit, the marine and fisheries industries in the future will be able to help solve social problems. For example, with the opening of employment opportunities to reduce poverty and social inequality.

"Not only is this industry going forward and competing, but also social issues about poverty, unemployment and inequality. Must consider the three social aspects," he said.

161 Countries Interested in Indonesia Fish Products


Indonesian fishery products are increasingly attracting the world markets by the increasing demand of world countries for Indonesian fish products. Head of the Fish Quarantine Agency, Fisheries Product Quality and Safety Control (BKIPM) Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP), Rina said, at least there are currently 161 countries that accept fish from Indonesia. This is also accompanied by an increase in fish quarantine facilities in Indonesia.

 

This increase is in line with the increase in Non-Tax State Revenues (PNBP) from the fisheries sector. Rina revealed, in 2015, PNBP from fisheries quarantine was in the range of Rp20-30 billion. Whereas in 2018, quarantine PNBP targeted at Rp48 billion was revised to Rp75 billion.

Not only PNBP, the number of fisheries certificates issued also continues to increase. "To that end, BKIPM continues to improve services to users, including the provision of decent space, improved HR quality, and easier services," added Rina.

Next year it will be continued to improve services effectively and efficiently and sharpen supervision at the main entrance doors, including in Pontianak which is close to the border.

This effort, according to her, will involve stakeholders such as Polairud and the local Marine and Fisheries Agency (DKP), by building a fisheries office at the border so that the fisheries resources issued are legal, safe, and maintain quality.

Indonesian National Fish Day


Indonesian National Fish Day (HARKANNAS) is commemorated every November 21, based on Presidential Decree Number 3 of 2014, to encourage the level of fish consumption in Indonesia.National food security and the fulfillment of community nutrition are a serious concern of the government to increase public awareness of the importance of fish as a food that contains high-quality protein.

 

Indonesia's enormous fisheries potential must be used optimally and sustainably in order to improve the quality of human resources and support national food and nutrition security. Cases of dual nutrition (overweight and malnutrition) and stunting are still serious problems facing the Indonesian people. As a food that is easily produced in various scales and highly nutritious, fish is able to be the solution to this problem.

Indonesia's leading fishery commodities are shrimp, tuna and catfish, which are well-known abroad. The export value of shrimp & tuna until September 2018 was the first and second highest position compared to other commodities amounting to USD 1,302.5 million (37%) and USD 433.6 million (12.3%). While the Indonesian Patin with the brand "Indonesian Pangasius - The Better Choice", which was launched at the SEAFEX exhibition in Dubai, October 30, is predicted to win the world market. Patin Indonesia is considered to have an advantage because it was developed with probiotics and cultivated in ponds with clean groundwater, also with lower densities than other countries.

Harkannas 2018 is expected to remind us of the importance of protein and other nutritional content in fish as one of the solutions in dealing with community nutrition problems and to improve the quality of Indonesian human life.

Tuna for Weight Loss Program


Thanks to its high protein and low calorie count, tuna could help your weight loss program as long as you choose the right kind. Protein is hard to digest, and its high thermic effect means that your body burns more calories in breaking down protein than it does breaking down carbohydrates and fats, so eating more protein-packed foods boosts your overall calorie burn.

 

Serve your tuna with low-cal and low-fat mix-ins to promote weight loss, and choose low-mercury varieties of tuna as your healthiest option. Eating 3 ounces of tuna steak boosts your protein intake by 24 grams, while 3 ounces of tuna canned in water offers 17 grams of protein. That's a significant amount toward your daily protein needs -- 56 and 46 grams for men and women, respectively.

While tuna itself is good for weight loss, not every dish featuring tuna is slimming. For example, tuna salad made with lots of mayonnaise can add hundreds of calories, along with unhealthy fats abundant in mayo. Instead, make tuna salad with nonfat cottage cheese or plain, nonfat Greek yogurt. These mix-ins will add creamy texture with little fat, and they're also high in beneficial protein. Or add chunks of canned or grilled tuna to a spinach or kale salad, or top your tuna steak with a healthy pineapple-mango salsa.

Indonesian Fish Products Predicted to Reach 15 Million tons in 2018


Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Susi Pudjiastuti estimates that the potential of fish in Indonesian waters until the end of 2018 can reach 15 million tons. This is seen from the increase in national fish potential that has skyrocketed.

She claimed, the jargon “Tenggelamkan”' had successfully increased the yield of marine fish in Indonesia. Not a few foreign country ships were captured and then burned and sunk into the sea by Susi.

Given that, since the 1980s, thousands of foreign vessels have been free to steal fish from local fishermen. Even the marine thieves are still active until 2013. As a result, the number of fish is getting smaller, even Indonesian fishermen have difficulty in finding fish for their daily needs.

For this reason, she is firm in combating illegal fishing and prohibiting the use of trawlers or trawlers in the sea.

She also estimated that around 10,000 foreign vessels would not dare go to sea and steal fish in Indonesian waters because they were afraid of being drowned. According to him, this cannot be separated from the full support of President Joko Widodo (Jokowi).

What You Need to Know Before Buying Frozen Fish


Frozen fillets can be just as tasty as the fresh stuff–and less expensive, too. Today, technology has shifted to the extent that frozen fish is often has extraordinary quality, surpassing the shiny fillets you see in the market which a lot of the time, those have often already been frozen, too. Here’s some tips on buying and cooking frozen fish

Image: unsplash

 

1.Look to the eco labels

Look to eco-labels as a starting point in their selection process because it shed light on the network of links between the fishing boat and your plate

 

2. Peek at the geographical data

Stowell says geographical data printed on a package of frozen fish is the real key to knowing whether the fish has been harmlessly pulled from the sea in numbers that don’t jeopardize future stocks. Whenever you can, buy local frozen fish.

 

3. Know your acronyms

To further understand the options in the freezer aisle, it’s important to know the difference between products labeled Frozen at Sea (FAS) and Individually Quick-Frozen (IQF).

FAS products may be caught, filleted, and frozen aboard the same boat. “That’s the ideal situation, because the freshness is locked in until you are ready to eat the fish,” says sustainable seafood chef, advocate, and cookbook author Barton Seaver.

But other times, FAS fish are frozen whole on a factory ship, thawed, and reprocessed at a plant ashore. This kind is sold as “previously frozen” in grocery store cases. This process actually negates the benefits of freezing fish in the first place, contends Seaver, because the longer the fish sits thawed out, the more the quality deteriorates. To maintain the benefits of FAS fish, defrost it as close to when you plan to cook it as possible.

The IQF label is given to pieces of finfish or shellfish that have been fast-frozen as single units, glazed with a skim coat of water that freezes instantly to preserve the freshness of the fish, bagged, and then boxed. The “quick” in IQF simply means the product was frozen in a matter of minutes or hours, not days, using either blast freezing or cryogenic methods that employ liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide.

When selecting IQF seafood, pull it from the coldest depths of the freezer compartment at the store to help ensure it has remained in its frozen state. Inspect it for signs of freezer burn, ice crystals, and clumping of the pieces of seafood, all of which are signs that it has been thawed and refrozen somewhere along the supply chain.

 

4. Thaw it safely

Regardless of the type of frozen fish you buy, it is best to thaw in the fridge. Many types can be defrosted by dinnertime if you put it in the fridge before work. The fattier fishes (arctic char, salmon, smelts, swordfish or trout) should always be thawed before proceeding with your favorite recipes for fresh fish.

 

5. Cook it right from the freezer

You can easily cook your flakier white fish (cod, flounder, haddock, halibut or hake) from the freezer. To do so, coat frozen fillets with oil and sauté them for 3 to 4 minutes before slathering them with a fatty condiment.

Health Benefits of Hairtail Fish


Ribbon fish or we often hear it as Hairtail fish is a general term for various species of deep-sea marine fish within the Trachipteridae family. With their elongated bodies, these fish come in three main genera – Desmodena, Zu, and Trachipterus.

 

The largest specimens within this family can grow over six feet in length, although most species are between 2 and 3 feet in length. Found in all major oceans, they are rarely harvested on any large scale, since they reside in such deep waters. That being said, some species are fished for in California and other coastal waters, and they have mild, tender meat that easily flakes off the bone once cooked.

In terms of nutrition, ribbon fish generally contains about 350 calories in a 100-gram serving, making them a very calorie-dense type of fish. The same serving also provides high levels of protein, as well as some B vitamins and high levels of sodium, as well as select polyunsaturated, monounsaturated, and saturated fats.

There are a number of health benefits of eating ribbon fish, including the following:

  1. Boosting cardiovascular health
  2. Relieving inflammation
  3. Improving vision health
  4. Treating depression
  5. Treating arthritis and joint pain
  6. Clearing out blood vessels
  7. Boosting brain power
  8. Improving skin appearance
  9. Preventing chronic diseases
  10. Promoting satiety

While these fish aren’t known as extremely nutrient-dense fish, they have omega-3 fatty acids that can help to boost cardiovascular health and reduce inflammation. By providing so many essential nutrients, this fish can also help to prevent chronic diseases, thanks to certain antioxidant components, and will generally keep you feeling full.

Chinese Culinary Favourite, Hairtail Fish


Hairtail fish can grow more than 1m in length.  It preys on krill, baby squid and other small fish and it hunts at night in imposing schools. This ribbon fish reckoned mostly by Chinese with their well-known deep fried hairtail. The hairtail (Trichiurus lepturus), known to the Chinese as daiyu?or the fish that looks like a belt was especially valued because it was a saltwater fish.

Image: The Strait Times

 

Western cooks tend to look down on the hairtail, considering it a poor quality fish, but Asian cooks have no such hang-ups and it is a prominent ingredient in both Chinese and Korean cuisines.

It is a fish that is easy to cook. The most common way is to shallow-fry it to a crisp, so that the thin edges can be crunched up while the flesh inside remains sweet and tender.

The fried fish can be processed one more step, by braising in a savoury brown sauce that varies in different regions. Sometimes, Welsh onions or scallions are added and the fish and herbs become a topping for noodles.

In the northern regions, they like to douse the fried hairtail with an appetite-whetting brown vinegar and sugar gravy, which also helps repel any lingering pungency.

The fish is often red-cooked until tender, with plenty of thinly sliced brown onions and shredded ginger. It can also be cooked with tangy tomatoes.

The Chinese appreciate this fish for its high fat content and it is believed that it is a food that can reduce cholesterol. There is also something in its silver coating that some believe is anti-carcinogenic.

There is no doubt, however, that it is a nutritious fish that is easily available and affordable.

11 Benefits on Why We Should Eating Fish


Fish is among the healthiest foods on the planet. It is loaded with important nutrients, such as protein and vitamin D and also the world's best source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are incredibly important for your body and brain. Here are 11 health benefits of eating fish that are supported by research.

Image: Unsplash

1. Fish Is High in Important Nutrients

Fish are high in many nutrients that most people aren't getting enough of. This includes high-quality protein, iodine and various vitamins and minerals. However, some fish are better than others, and the fatty types of fish are considered the healthiest. That's because fatty fish (like salmon, trout, sardines, tuna and mackerel) are higher in fat-based nutrients. This includes the fat-soluble vitamin D, a nutrient that most people are deficient in. It functions like a steroid hormone in the body. Fatty fish are also much higher in omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are crucial for your body and brain to function optimally, and are strongly linked to reduced risk of many diseases. To meet your omega-3 requirements, eating fatty fish at least once or twice a week is recommended.

2. Fish May Lower Your Risk of Heart Attacks and Strokes

Heart attacks and strokes are the two most common causes of premature death in the world. Fish is generally considered to be among the best foods you can eat for a healthy heart. Many large observational studies have shown that people who eat fish regularly seem to have a lower risk of heart attacks, strokes and death from heart disease. In one study of more than 40,000 male health professionals in the US, those who regularly ate 1 or more servings of fish per week had a 15% lower risk of heart disease. Researchers believe that the fatty types of fish are even more beneficial for heart health, because of their high amount of omega-3 fatty acids.

3. Fish Contains Nutrients That Are Crucial During Development

Omega-3 fatty acids are absolutely essential for growth and development. The omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is especially important, because it accumulates in the developing brain and eye. For this reason, it is often recommended that expecting and nursing mothers make sure to eat enough omega-3 fatty acids. However, there is one caveat with recommending fish to expecting mothers. Some fish is high in mercury, which ironically is linked to brain developmental problems. For this reason, pregnant women should only eat fish that are low in the food chain (salmon, sardines, trout, etc), and no more than 12 ounces (340 grams) per week. Pregnant women should also avoid raw and uncooked fish (including sushi), because it may contain microorganisms that can harm the fetus.

4. Fish May Increase Grey Matter in the Brain and Protect it From Age-Related Deterioration

One of the consequences of ageing is that brain function often deteriorates (referred to as age-related cognitive decline). This is normal in many cases, but then there are also serious neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease. Interestingly, many observational studies have shown that people who eat more fish have slower rates of cognitive decline. One mechanism could be related to grey matter in the brain. Grey matter is the major functional tissue in your brain, containing the neurons that process information, store memories and make you human. Studies have shown that people who eat fish every week have more grey matter in the centers of the brain that regulate emotion and memory.

5. Fish May Help Prevent and Treat Depression, Making You a Happier Person

Studies have found that people who eat fish regularly are much less likely to become depressed. Numerous controlled trials have also found that omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial against depression, and significantly increase the effectiveness of antidepressant medications. What this means is that fish can quite literally make you a happier person and improve your quality of life. Fish and omega-3 fatty acids may also help with other mental disorders, such as bipolar disorder.

6. Fish Is The Only Good Dietary Source of Vitamin D

Fish and fish products are the best dietary sources of vitamin D, by far. Fatty fish like salmon and herring contain the highest amounts. A single 4 ounce (113 gram) serving of cooked salmon contains around 100% of the recommended intake of vitamin D. Some fish oils, such as cod liver oil, are also very high in vitamin D, providing more than 200% of the recommended intake in a single tablespoon. If you don't get much sun and don't eat fatty fish regularly, then you may want to consider taking a vitamin D supplement.

7. Fish Consumption Is Linked to Reduced Risk of Autoimmune Diseases, Including Type 1 Diabetes

Autoimmune disease occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissues. A key example is type 1 diabetes, which involves the immune system attacking the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. Several studies have found that omega-3 or fish oil consumption is linked to reduced risk of type 1 diabetes in children, as well as a form of autoimmune diabetes in adults. The results are preliminary, but researchers believe that this may be caused by the omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D in fish and fish oils. Some believe that fish consumption may also lower the risk of rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis, but the current evidence is weak at best.

8. Fish May Help Prevent Asthma in Children

Asthma is a common disease that is characterized by chronic inflammation in the airways. Unfortunately, rates of asthma have increased dramatically over the past few decades. Studies show that regular fish consumption is linked to a 24% lower risk of asthma in children, but no significant effect has been found in adults.

9. Fish May Protect Your Vision in Old Age

A disease called macular degeneration is a leading cause of vision impairment and blindness, and mostly affects older individuals. There is some evidence that fish and omega-3 fatty acids may provide protection against this disease. In one study, regular consumption of fish was linked to a 42% lower risk of macular degeneration in women. Another study found that eating fatty fish once per week was linked to a 53% decreased risk of neovascular ("wet") macular degeneration.

10. Fish May Improve Sleep Quality

Sleep disorders have become incredibly common worldwide. There are many different reasons for this (such as increased exposure to blue light), but some researchers believe that vitamin D deficiency can also play a role. In a 6-month study of 95 middle-aged men, a meal with salmon three times per week led to improvements in both sleep and daily functioning. The researchers speculated that this was caused by the vitamin D in the salmon.

11. Fish Is Delicious and Easy to Prepare

This last one is not a health benefit, but still very important. It is the fact that fish is delicious and easy to prepare. For this reason, it should be relatively easy to incorporate it into the diet. Eating fish 1-2 times per week is considered sufficient to reap the benefits. If possible, choose wild-caught fish over farmed. Wild fish tends to have more omega-3s and is less likely to be contaminated with harmful pollutants. That being said, even if eating farmed fish, the benefits still far outweigh the risks. All types of fish are good for you.

KKP Encourages Opportunities of the Sustainable Catfish Cultivation Industry


The Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) encourages a strategy to develop a sustainable catfish cultivation industry. This is to boost production to meet the consumption needs of catfish, including to expand export market access to several countries. To boost national catfish production, Slamet Soebjakto, Director General of Aquaculture, revealed that there were at least 3 (three) main strategies in the effort to develop a sustainable catfish cultivation industry.

First, developing a scale of aquaculture into a sustainable technology-based industry. According to him this industrialization must be driven holistically through the development of seed industry, enlargement production systems, development of more efficient production inputs, independent feed and fish processing industries.

He also said that cultivation technology innovation has now developed progressively. He gave an example, at the hatchery level the technology of the Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) has been pushed for catfish commodities. This technology has actually been able to boost productivity up to 100 times more than conventional, besides being more environmentally friendly, and efficient in water and land use. Industrialization of seedlings is very important to ensure the availability of quality seeds on an ongoing basis.

In addition, bioflok catfish technology has been shown to increase cultivation productivity. Bioflok has also been able to lift the image of catfish as a product that is very accepted in the community. Recently, KKP has collaborated with LIPI to implement ultrafine micro bubble generator technology. This technology is also able to improve livelihoods and productivity significantly and can be effectively applied to catfish cultivation.

Therefore, according to Imza, the chairman of the Indonesian Catfish Entrepreneur Association (APCI),  to reach this opportunity, entrepreneurs must begin to understand the importance of obtaining certification of Good Fish Cultivation (CBIB) in order to be able to penetrate into the export market. "CBIB is absolute as a condition to penetrate exports and improve product competitiveness. The potential of the catfish industry in the future is very open. Next month, APCI members will also promote catfish products

If our orientation is to export, according to him, this competitiveness needs to be improved, namely by continuing to encourage businesses to improve quality assurance and food security. "Technology standardization and CBIB certification will continue to be encouraged. So catfish have a positive image, thus increasing consumer preferences. Moreover, export destination countries must implement rigid quality requirements. So we must be ready, "he added. Another important strategy is to encourage production efficiency, especially how farmers get access to efficient production inputs.

"Earlier it was said that manufacturers' feed prices continued to crawl due to the strengthening of the dollar exchange rate against the rupiah, even though feed is the highest compiler of production costs, which is around 70-75 percent. In this condition, it must start using independent feed to increase profit margins. We have studied, it turns out that the quality of independent feed is not far behind with factory feed. "Using independent food from farmers can save costs of around 4-5 thousand per kg," said Slamet.

Therefore, he hopes that business meeting moments should be a place to strengthen cooperation among stakeholders, including how to formulate a strategy version of business actors that can later be elaborated with the CTF's policies.

Indonesia Dominates Fisheries Exports in ASEAN for First Time in The History


Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Susi Pudjiastuti dismissed the notion of people regarding fisheries exports to decline. According to her, not all commodities are exported in the form of whole fish or logs, but in the form of processed food. "Exports of many fish have been processed. When viewed from the HS code for log fish, it is certainly not visible but if from other products such as meatballs, nuggets, surimi, there is an increase," he said.

The trade balance of fishery products during the four years of Joko Widodo-Jusuf Kalla's (Jokowi-JK) government succeeded in becoming the first in ASEAN. This achievement is the first time that the government has achieved. The increase in the trade balance beat Thailand and Vietnam, triggered by the increase in exports as a result of illegal arrests.

"During the four years of the Jokowi-JK Government, the government was very committed to achieving sovereign fisheries through policies to eradicate illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing," said Susi Pudjiastuti.

Quoting the 4-year performance report of the maritime and fisheries sector published by the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP), in the first half of 2015 the fishery product trade balance was US $ 1.82 billion, in the first semester 2018 it increased to US $ 2.05 billion. The annual trade balance also increased, from US $ 3.61 billion in 2015 to US $ 4.09 billion in 2017.

Indonesia's Fisheries Export Value Increases Continuously


Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Susi Pudjiastuti denied Indonesian fisheries exports had decreased. Although the volume of fishery exports experienced a decline, but the value of Indonesian fisheries exports experienced improvement. "Between the volume and the value, the value of it is high. The volume increases but the value rises higher. Means that we are right in making the policy," she said.

 

Image: Liputan6

 

In 2014, the volume of exports from fisheries production was recorded at 603.81 thousand tons, down to 514.13 thousand tons in 2015, 551.71 thousand tons in 2016, 475.74 thousand tons in 2017. While up to the first semester of 2018, exports fishery products 510.05 thousand tons.

Whereas in value, fishery product exports in 2014 were recorded at USD2.20 billion, in 2015 amounting to USD2.00 billion, in 2016 amounting to USD2.09 billion, in 2017 amounting to USD2.01 billion. While up to semester I-2018 the value increased to USD 2.27 billion.

The increase in value due to Indonesian fishery product exports also began to shift into processed products. In addition, the KKP also increases aquaculture production to encourage fisheries exports from Indonesia.

"Exports of fisheries production have some criticism of exports falling. This is not true. Now the export of fish has been processed, from meatballs, nuggets, surimi, there is a high increase," he explained.

In terms of the fisheries trade balance there was an increase in exports of 13.88 percent from January to June 2017 to 2018 with a value of USD 2.05 billion. This achievement also placed Indonesia's fisheries trade balance number one in ASEAN for the first time in history.

Nutrition in Flying Fish Roe


Fish eggs that we usually consume are having a potent boost of nutrients, including vitamin B-12 and omega-3 fatty acids. However, like all good things, fish eggs should be eaten in moderation because they are high in sodium and cholesterol. As mention in livestrong.com one ounce of wild salmon roe contains 70 calories, 4 grams of fat, 9 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of carbohydrate. Saturated fat comprises 1 gram of the total fat content; the rest comes from healthy polyunsaturated fatty acids.

 

Image: Young Ocean

 

Fish eggs are also high in the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids, and they are also rich sources of vitamin B-12. Omega-3 fatty acids are crucial for proper brain function and heart health, and they help reduce inflammation in the body that can lead to chronic disease. Vitamin B-12 is another brain-boosting nutrient, and it also helps the body metabolize food into energy. One ounce of salmon roe contains 1,096 milligrams of total omega-3, with 438 milligrams of EPA and 514 milligrams of DHA. That's more than the 1 gram daily recommended for heart health by the American Heart Association.

However, fish eggs are also high in cholesterol. A 1-ounce serving of black caviar contains 165 milligrams of cholesterol. That's more than half of the daily limit of 300 milligrams recommended for healthy adults. A diet high in cholesterol increases your risk for heart disease. The sodium content of caviar is another drawback. Fish eggs are soaked in a salt solution during processing, which drives up the sodium content. People need to watch their intake of this because consuming too much sodium which more than the 2,300-milligram daily recommended limit could leads to increased risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease.

RI Chances in Taking Over Vietnam's Patin Export Market in US and Europe


Indonesian Patin (Silver Catfish) have the potential to enter the US and European markets following the reduced supply of Patin from Vietnam. Director General of Penguatan Daya Saing Produk Kelautan dan Perikanan (PDSPKP) Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP), Rifky Efendi Hardijanto said, currently the potential of US and European Catfish market is wide open.

 

Image: Lima Waktu

 

KKP will maximize the utilization of Integrated Cold Storage (ICS) to boost the industrialization of national catfish. "The market share of US and Europe catfish is wide plus Vietnam are now abandoned the market they usually filled. So this is a great potential for Indonesia to fill the gap, " said Rifky.

He explained, since 20 years ago, Vietnam had proclaimed itself as a world patin producer, which was able to fill the global catfish market. Over time, Vietnam does not maintain their quality so that the US and Europe markets no longer import catfish from Vietnam.

Based on data obtained by the CTF, Vietnam is able to produce 1.19 million tons of catfish per year. While Indonesia is only 437 thousand million tons. However, national catfish exports are not too high because they are intended to fulfill domestic needs.

"Hence, in the future we will not only produce for domestic consumption, but we will increase the export-oriented ones," he said.

To be able to enter the American and European markets, the domestic fishing industry must prepare itself. One of them is by utilizing ICS where it is a place of downstream processes ranging from selection, cleaning, storage to packaging of fishery products.

"With the ICS, the products that have come out can be directly exported," he continued.

As for the Indonesian catfish producer area, Sumatra is still the largest by contributing 68.07 percent of national catfish production, Riau 8.14 percent, South Kalimantan 10.06 percent, Central Kalimantan 8.81 percent, Jambi 6.43 percent, and West Java 6.4 percent.

Eat The Right Fish for Your Healthy Heart


Fish contains a variety of nutrients, such as protein, fat, to omega-3. It makes it healthy and becomes a consumption recommendation for all ages. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), there are so many reasons to make fish as part of the daily menu. The agency even suggested that people can eat fish at least once or twice a week.

That means, adults must struggle to eat at least two servings or 3.5 ounces of fish every week. The best choice is oily fish with large doses of omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, vultures and sardines.

Oil in these fish can increase levels of good cholesterol (HDL) in the body. Therefore, consumption of good oil can reduce triglyceride levels by around 15-30% and help reduce blood pressure.

"Fish oil can also prevent plaques that form in the arteries. Then in people who are at risk for heart disease, fish oil can reduce fatal arrhythmias. This is an abnormal heart rhythm that can cause heart attacks in certain cases, "said Dr. Kartika Mayasari from KlikDokter.

Similarly, the American Heart Association (AHA) also said that fish is very beneficial for people who have been affected by heart problems. Related to this, a study of heart attack victims found that those who were asked to eat fish twice a week had a 27% lower chance of dying during the next two years.

"Scientific studies have established the beneficial effects of consuming seafood rich in omega-3 fatty acids, especially when it replaces unhealthy foods, such as meat that is high in saturated fat and at risk of causing blockages," said Harvard University professor Eric Rimm.

In fact, in addition to preventing and minimizing heart disease, eating fish can also provide other benefits to the body - such as reducing inflammation reactions, helping children's brain development, to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL).

How to consume good fish

The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that you do not eat fish in a fried manner. This is because recent studies have found that fried fish lovers actually experience a high risk of heart failure.

In addition, several similar studies reveal that more than 90,000 Americans who eat fried fish at least once a week have a higher risk of heart failure than those who eat boiled fish.

In addition to paying attention to how to process it, you must also pay attention to the type of fish chosen. Yes, not all fish are good for your body. The issue of mercury and excess fat content in some types of fish is the reason for the importance of choosing fish.

"Some types of fish that should be avoided are cones, sharks, and white tuna. Also note that lack of pollution does not mean there is no mercury contamination at all, " said Dr. Astrid Wulan Kusumoastuti from Klikdokter.

Is Frozen Fish Good for Health?


Chairman of the Asosiasi Rantai Pendingin Indonesia (ARPI) Hasanuddin Yasni said frozen fish is safe to consume. Ice cubes used to store the fish affect the quality of the stored fish. "When the fish is captured, the temperature must be lowered immediately. The used of ice cubes, fatty acids and proteins will make the condition of the fish remains fresh. If the fish is left alone without being cooled, fat oxidation will occurs," explained Hasanuddin.The process of fat oxidation will damage the protein in fish. The nutritional value of fish goes down, the zero community does not consume full nutrition. If the fish is not cooled or frozen, then the potential for bacteria (microbes) increases.

 

Image: Liputan6.com

 

The journal report entitled Microbiological Evaluation of Some Heat Treated Fish Products in Egyptian Markets, published on the Ecronicon page, in December 2017 writes, fish experience undesirable changes due to microbial contamination. Rapid decay due to protein denaturation — the process of changing the structure of proteins — and the oxidation of lipids (oxidation of fatty acids) which causes loss of fish quality.

The water content in fish is higher. This water content means that the microbial content is also high. Warm and hot temperatures can also increase bacteria. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States noted that fish caught in tropical waters, where warm temperatures can easily increase the number of bacteria if not immediately stored in ice cubes. Bacterial contamination in food often results in food decay. Life-threatening health hazards, such as food poisoning (vomiting, diarrhea) can be experienced.

Frozen fish or fish that experience freezing are okay to be consumed. People can eat fish safely. Hot temperatures and bacteria can make fish more contaminated with bacteria. When that happens, fish is not safe for human consumption.

Freezing fish (frozen fish) actually is not a problem. Storage of fish after purchase also needs to be considered. Even after the fish is washed it must be immediately frozen in the freezer at a temperature of 14-18 degrees Celsius. For freshly caught fish, it must be cooled to 8 degrees Celsius. That temperature is the safe temperature of fish storage. Fish can survive in the freezer for 4-6 months.

For melting the fish is also need to be done in the right way. Frozen fish can not be immediately thawed with hot water. Initial stages, fish can be melted with ordinary tap water. This ordinary tap water is cold water. Soak the fish first for a few minutes with the packaging.

"Storage of fish in the home freezer must also be correct. Before being put into the freezer, fish must be washed and cut thoroughly. So, if we want to cooked it, we could just take it as we needed. If the fish has been removed from the freezer, do not put it in the freezer again. "Fish that have been exposed to warm temperatures will be contaminated with bacteria," said Marketing Director of the Directorate General of Marine and Fisheries Resources Supervision, Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP), Machmud.

"I have to collect the PNBP data from 47 companies listed in quarantine. Generally, the KKP will increase its PNBP," said Head of the Fish Quarantine Agency, Quality Control and Safety of Fisheries Products of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs (KKP) Rina when met at the Grand Hyatt, Jakarta. Friday (12/10/2018).

Rina explained, KKP PNBP has increased every year. In 2016 PNBP revenue was IDR 52.86 billion from the target of IDR 14.02 billion and 2017 was IDR 69.78 billion from the target of IDR 36 billion.

Rina explained, electronic system transactions using EDC (Electronic Data Capture) have minimized illegal collection. So all funds that must be deposited to the KKP come without going through an intermediary.

EDC would immediately received the money straight into the bank. She also said that it will be more neat and clean with the systems.

Red Goatfish, The Saltwater Fish


The Red Goatfish (Ikan Rembang), Parupeneus multifasciatus, also known as the Manybar Goatfish has a black/red body bisected by a thick cream-colored line and muted black lines. Like other goatfish species, the Red Goatfish has beard-like appendages called "barbels" dangling off of their lower lip used to probe the sand for sources of food.

Goatfishes generally have an elongate body with two widely separated dorsal fins and a soft, forked tail. They are capable of rapid color changes and a fish resting on the bottom often exhibits a different color than when it is active. There are 10 species of goatfishes native to Hawaiian reefs, but no known general Hawaiian term for all goatfish. Species with one or more stripes running the length of the body are called weke with a second word to denote the species, i.e. weke ‘ula (yellowfin goatfish or Mulloidichthys vanicolensis), weke ‘a (yellow-stripe goatfish or Mulloidichtys flavolineatus), and weke pueo (bandtail goatfish or Upeneus arge).

Goatfishes are predators. They feed on bottom-dwelling invertebrates including worms, crustaceans, small molluscs, brittle stars and heart urchins. A few species also take small fishes. When food is located, a goatfish plunges its snout into the sediment and roots for its prey, inhaling sand and prey alike. Prey are swallowed and sand is expelled via the gill cover. Some goatfish species are active primarily at night and spend daylight hours hovering in stationary schools over the reef. Others are most active by day, and some hunt by either day or night.

In Goatfish origins, Hawai‘i, all species of goatfish have long been popular as food. The manybar goatfish or moano (Parupeneus multifascatus) is recognized in a Hawaiian song for its delicious taste. The goatfish known as k?m? (whitesaddle goatfish or Parupeneus porphyreus) was highly esteemed in early Hawai‘i and was eaten broiled, cooked in leaves, raw or salted lightly for two or three days, then cooked. K?m? were used as an offering to the gods when priests required a red fish. It was an appropriate offering when launching a canoe, in hula ceremonies and sometimes to atone for a sin. One meaning of the word k?m? is master. Persons who had been through a period of learning and were now “master” of an art would make an offering of a k?m?. Weke are also popular food fish, but care should be taken not to eat the head of certain species. The brain reputedly contains toxins which cause disturbed sleep, nightmares and hallucinations.

In Indonesia, people known this kind of fish similarly with Red Mullet. Goatfish also popular in Indonesia as food. People will likely to cooked it in traditional menu as it has a delicious kind of meat. Goatfish are sold fresh or frozen just like the type Komira sell to to customers, the Red Goatfish one.

8 Interesting Facts About Barracuda


Barracuda name is applied to not only one particular fish, but the whole fish family. Sphyraenidae are a group of fish known collectively as barracudas. The species most known barracudas commonly encountered may be the large species of barracudas (Sphyraena barracuda). But the world's oceans are full of all kinds of Barracuda fish, including the crows of Barracuda, sawtooth Barracuda, and sharp Barracuda fish. 

1. There are at least 27 Kinds of Barracuda 

Some species are named for the region where they are found, such as Guinea Barracuda, Mexican Barracuda, Japanese Barracuda, and European Barracuda.

 

2. The uncommon looks unlike other kind of fish in the sea

Even if you just look it in a glance, it’s easy to recognize the Barracuda. Barracuda has a long, slender body that is tapered at the end and thicker in the center. The head is slightly flat above and pointed at the front, and the lower jaw is forward, sharp. The two dorsal fins are far apart, and the pectoral fins are positioned low on the body. Most species are dark above, with silver sides and clear lateral lines stretching from head to tail on each side. The barracuda fins are slightly branched and curved on the trailing edge. Smaller Barracuda fish species may be up to 20 inches in size, but larger species can reach 6 feet or larger in size.

 

3. Barracuda Fish Inhabits Tropical and Subtropical Waters Around the World

Most Barracuda fish species live in near-shore habitats, such as seagrass beds, mangroves, and coral reefs. They are mainly marine fish, although some varieties can tolerate brackish water at times. Barracuda inhabits the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, and are also commonly found in the Caribbean and the Red Sea.

 

4. Barracuda eats fish with a typical shining skinned fish

Barracuda hunts mainly with vision, observing water for signs of prey when they swim. Smaller fish are most visible when they reflect light, and often look like shiny metal objects in the water. This, unfortunately, can cause misunderstanding between barracuda and humans in the water.

 

5. The speed of Barracuda can reach up to 35 MPH

The barracuda body is shaped like a torpedo, and is made to cut water. This long, slim and muscular fish is one of the fastest in the sea, capable of swimming up to 35 mph. Barracuda swim almost as fast as mako sharks that are very fast. Barracuda fish cannot maintain the highest speed for long distances. Barracuda is a sprinter who is capable of spitting out speed in pursuit of prey. They spend most of their time swimming slow enough to conduct food surveys, and only accelerate when eating within reach.

 

6. Barracuda has a scary sharp teeth

Barracuda fish have a large mouth, with long jaws and underbite characteristics. They also have many teeth. In fact, barracudas have two rows of teeth: the outermost rows of small but sharp teeth to tear the flesh, and rows in long teeth and daggers to firmly capture their prey. Some barracuda teeth point to the back, as an additional help to secure writhing fish. A barracuda can open his mouth wide enough to catch the fish it finds, from small killers to curly groupers.

 

7. It’s not as dangerous as other fish with sharp teeth

Because barracudas are quite common and inhabit the same waters where people swim and dive, the opportunity to meet a barracuda is quite high. But despite being close to people in the water, barracudas rarely attack or injure humans. Most bites occur when the barracuda makes a mistake on a metal object for the fish, and tries to grab it. Barracuda will not continue to bite after realizing the object in question is not food. Barracuda attacks are rare, and almost never fatal. The teeth will cause damage to the arm or leg, so the victim usually needs sutures.

 

8. Barracudas’ meats is good to consume but still need to be cautious with the poisonous one

 

The bigger the size of the barracuda, the bigger chance that it is poisonous. At the bottom of the food chain, a toxic plankton known as Gambierdiscus toxin attaches to algae on coral reefs. Small, feed herbivorous fish on algae and also consume toxins. Larger predator fish prey on small fish, and collect higher toxin concentrations in their bodies. Every successive predator accumulates more poisons. While smaller barracudas are generally safe for consumption, larger barracudas can be ciguatoxic because they consume larger fish with a higher toxin load.

 

Ciguatera food poisoning is unlikely to kill you, but it's not an experience that you will enjoy. Biotoxins cause gastrointestinal, neurological, and cardiovascular symptoms that last for weeks or months. Patients report hallucinations, severe muscle and joint pain, skin irritation, and even reversal of hot and cold sensations. Unfortunately, there is no way to identify ciguatoxic barracuda, and both heat and frozen can kill fat-soluble toxins in contaminated fish. It's best to avoid eating large barracudas.

 

Komira supply one of the way to eats a proper barracuda for the consumer that had been sorted to the one people can consume in frozen fish form.

"Demand from Japan is also relatively always there every month even though the amount varies according to the needs of the buyer's country," Jimmy explained.The tuna loin commodity is one of the leading fishery products exported from the local province, in addition to skipjack tuna.

Jimmy said, the export demand which was mostly still dominated by skipjack fish as exports in August reached 24 tons to the Sakura flower country.

"Skipjack is indeed still a prima donna of exports following tuna and other basic fish. But the two main commodities (skipjack and tuna) are always in demand, especially from Japan," he concluded.

Identifying Sweetlips Fish


Plectorhinchus  is a genus of grunts, the sweetlips or usually known in Indonesia as Ikan Kaci Kaci is found in fresh, brackish, and salt waters. These fish have big, fleshy lips and tend to live on coral reefs in the Indo-Pacific in small groups or pairs. They will often associate with other fishes of similar species; several species of sweetlips sometimes swim together. They are usually seen in clusters in nooks and crannies or under overhangs. At nightfall, they venture from their shelters to seek out their bottom-dwelling invertebrate prey, such as bristle worms, shrimps, and small crabs.

 

 

Sweetlips colouring and patterning changes throughout their lives. For example, Plectorhinchus polytaenia develops more stripes with age. Juvenile sweetlips generally look quite different from the adults, and often live solitary lives on shallower reef sections. Juveniles may be banded or spotted and are usually a completely different colour from the adults of their species. Small juveniles have an undulating swimming pattern, possibly mimicking poisonous flatworms as a means of predator avoidance.

Sweetlips fish could become a healthy and highly nutritious consumption dish by processing it correctly or consumer can easily cooking dish with this fish by buying the one which already cleaned up or the frozen fish that Komira sell. Sweetlips could be cooked by frying, grilling, or as a spicy sour soup.

Minister Susi Asks Entrepreneurs to Capture US-China Trade Opportunities


Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Susi Pudjiastuti, appealed to fisheries businessmen to take advantage of the momentum of the United States (US) trade war with China.

She asked businessmen in fisheries sector to continue their work to boost exports to the United States. "With the trade war of China and the US Indonesian businessmen should get and be able to make an immediate breakthrough to be able to take incentives rather than this trade war situation," she said at the KKP Head Office.

Doc. Liputan6.com

 

Susi reminded the entrepreneurs to not let them decreasing the number of production and borrowing China names so that their products can enter the US. This attitude is considered to be detrimental to Indonesian products in the future.

Not only the fisheries sector, Susi Pudjiastuti also invited all domestic businesses to increase production. So in the future Indonesia can compete with countries in ASEAN which are export oriented.

"Let's use the opportunity to trade this war to improve our production work. All exporters should immediately consolidate from manufacturing products, fisheries, handicrafts. This is a great opportunity to compete against big dragons like China, Thailand, Vietnam that will be wasted if we’re not using this opportunities, "he said.

Natuna Islands’s Cultivators Export Grouper Fish to Hong Kong


The export of grouper from the re-cultivation was carried out by fish farmers in the Natuna Islands, Monday (10/9). At least 16,720 kg of live groupers were exported to Hong Kong, with export value reaching USD 100,314 or IDR 1.45 billion. Exports are carried out via the sea lane using two Hong Kong-flagged ships which are Mv. Cheung Kam Wah and Cheng Wai Hing.

Eko Prihananto, one of the grouper fish farmers in Natuna (PT Putri Ayu Jaya), confirmed that the shipment was carried out on Monday (10/9) and was attended by various related parties, quarantine officers from the port of Sedanau, Syahbandar Sedanau, Customs and Excise, BKIPM, Immigration , PSDKP, and the Navy. He also stated that in general the grouper export activity to Hong Kong was still stable throughout 2018.

Eko considered the prices of the grouper fish are still normal. The current prices for various types of grouper, each hybrid grouper Rp85,000 per kg, humpback grouper Rp.800,000 per kg, and sunu grouper Rp.350,000 per kg.

"Once shipment usually reaches a nominal of 16 tons. Actually the export from Natuna is normal. "Our records, we have been exporting it for the past 11 years, meaning that at least once a month this export activity exists," said Eko.

He explained, Natuna's position which was close to the export destination country was very strategic, so that he considered the grouper business was still a promising choice for the Natuna people.

"Exports to Hong Kong from Natuna can only take 6 days. Compare this with other regions such as Bali which takes up to 10 days, and for a round trip took about 20 days, "he added.

About the impact of the enactment of Ministerial Regulation No. 32 of 2016, Eko assessed that it’s influenced a little part in the process, but will not affect the overall export performance in the Natuna Islands.

"Permen KP is not too influential on the cultivation and the activities could continue as usual. The indicator is the number of fishermen are relatively stable. Currently there are at least 2,500 people involved in grouper business in Natuna that are spread in 15 Districts around Natuna islands. "

The Director General of Aquaculture, Slamet Soebjakto in his statement in Jakarta confirmed that grouper exports, especially in the Riau Islands, were still going as usual. According to him, Riau Islands is a national grouper cultivation center and is geographically close to market access in Hong Kong / China.

"Throughout this year, based on our monitoring, export activities, especially in the Natuna Islands, are still stable. "The recent export has been carried out in Natuna, indicating that export intensity is running normally," said Slamet

For other regions such as East Indonesia, there is indeed a decrease in export intensity, this is because access is far from the loading port. On the other hand, many cultivation businesses are not centralized in one area, so harvest quotas are considered not to cover transport capacity.

However, on the other hand, according to Slamet the Government must also be consistent to comply with the provisions of Law No. 17 of 2007 concerning Shipping. Where there is a stipulation that foreign-flagged vessels are not allowed to enter NKRI waters and stop between islands. According to Slamet, the solution is that there needs to be an Indonesian feeder from onfarm to the loading port.

"When it comes to the problem of the number of live fishing vessels resulting from actual cultivation that operate quite a lot. If before the enactment of the Candy, there were only 20 pieces, just after the Candy rose to 28. But speaking of frequency, we are bound by the Shipping Law which does not allow foreign fishing vessels to operate freely in Indonesian waters, let alone stop between small islands. The enactment of Permen 32 does have an influence, but we also have to be consistent with the provisions of the law, especially regarding the sovereignty of the state, "said Slamet.

Slamet also said, for the affected grouper fish farmers, the CTF has provided support programs to begin diversifying cultivation commodities to non-grouper who have wider market access such as white snapper and starfish in some areas.

"In some areas such as NTB, fish cultivation such as pomfret began to develop. I think we will encourage this as an alternative to commodities other than groupers, "concluded Slamet.

Meanwhile, based on monthly live grouper export volume data from BPS in 2018, shows the pattern that Indonesian grouper exports every year (2014-2018) begin to increase since August and the peak is around December to January of the following year. This pattern shows the trend of grouper exports is quite stable.

Improving Welfare of Fish Cultivators


Data from the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) shows that the micro-economic performance of the aquaculture fisheries sub-sector has improved, as can be seen from the Fish Cultivator Exchange Rate (NTPi) and the Fish Cultivator Business Value (NTUPi) growing positively throughout 2018. The positive trends of NTPi and NTUPi growth provide an overview Fish farming business that is involved in the community shows an increase in business profits and is more visible.

Image: Doc Humas DJPB

 

For the period July 2018, for example, NTPi's value reached 100.58 or corrected to grow by 0.88 percent compared to the same month in 2017 which reached 99.7. The achievement of NTPi in July 2018 is the highest value since January 2015. This condition indicates an increase in income accompanied by an improvement in purchasing power among fish cultivating communities. Fish cultivator income for example increased by 8.9 percent from Rp3.03 million per month in 2016 to around Rp3.3 million per month in 2017.

In terms of the performance of fish farming business, BPS also noted Fish Cultivator Business Exchange Rate (NTUPi) in the period July 2018 reached 111.55 or corrected to grow by 0.88 percent compared to the same month in 2017 which reached 110.57. This condition also indicates that the fish farming business that is carried out is more efficient, and influences the increase in value added profits that are cultivated by fish farmers. On the other hand, the capacity of fish cultivator business is also getting stronger.

The Director General of Aquaculture, Slamet Soebjakto in his statement in Jakarta on Tuesday (8/23) said that the trend of improving NTPi and NTUPi illustrates that the aquaculture business climate is getting better and has a real positive impact on the welfare of fish farmers. A positive business climate, according to him, was also triggered by more efficient production and selling prices of cultivated products that tended to improve in various regions.

According to Slamet, since the beginning of the Minister Susi Pudjiastuti, he felt concerned about the low income of farmers due to the lack of efficiency of aquaculture production. Therefore, as a follow-up, the KKP focuses on working on aquaculture with the main target of how to improve production efficiency and the added value of profits that are cultivated by fish farmers.

"We underlined that the achievement of NTPi for the July 2018 period which was corrected more than 100, is a positive achievement. I think this is a benchmark for the positive impact of various strategic programs of the CTF that directly touch fish farmers, such as production input support, independent feed movement program (Gerpari), technology development such as biofloc and Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS); Minapadi, seed support and other support that has now developed in various regions, "said Slamet.

Independent feed has been able to reduce feed input costs by at least 30%. Meanwhile, the use of RAS technology can also reduce Food Conversion Ratio (FCR) in fish to <1 compared to conventional systems that reach 1.5, this is because the metabolism in the fish body and the environment is better, thus the production cost is more efficient.

Indonesia and Congo Agree on Three Historical Cooperation


Indonesia and the Democratic Republic of Congo (RD) agreed to strengthen cooperation in three fields: economic, diplomatic and environmental. This was stated by the foreign ministers of the two countries after a historic bilateral meeting at the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Jakarta, Thursday (6/9/2018).

This is the first visit of high-ranking RD Congo officials to Indonesia since the two countries opened diplomatic relations in 1963, about 55 years ago.

Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of the Democratic Republic of the Congo Leonard She Okitundu Lundula and Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno L.P Marsudi at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia (6/9) (Rizki Akbar Hasan / Liputan6.com)

The two ministers also signed a Joint Bilateral Commission (JBC) memorandum of understanding to strengthen bilateral relations and expand the prospects for cooperation in other fields.

"We prioritize cooperation in the fields of infrastructure, mining, fisheries and marine life (aquaculture), agriculture and oil palm plantations. RD Congo also wants to discuss cooperation in the field of textiles," said Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi when delivering a press statement with the Minister RD Congo Foreign Affairs, Leonard She Okitundu Lundula at the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Thursday (6/9/2018).

In turn, Foreign Minister Lundula - who also served as Deputy Prime Minister - said that "RD Congo has huge potential for Indonesian investment." He also stressed that the two countries would also pursue infrastructure, textile, mining, aquaculture, and palm oil cooperation projects.

"We have great potential in RD Congo," he said.

RD Congo also targets diplomatic cooperation with Indonesia.

"We are very aware of Indonesia's experience in managing diplomatic issues," Foreign Minister Lundula said. That knowledge also makes RD Congo support Indonesia in the election of Non-Permanent Members of the UN Security Council in June 2018.

Meanwhile, related to the environment, Foreign Minister Lundula said that Indonesia and RD Congo had an important role related to forestry issues to fight climate change. "The stakeholders from the country with the largest forest area can discuss the steps taken to benefit our society," he said.

Minister Retno Marsudi said, African countries, including RD Congo, were Indonesia's foreign policy priorities, following the Indonesia Africa Forum (IAF) in April 2018 which gave good results.

The two countries are also committed to following up on cooperation to a greater extent, following the planned participation of the two countries in the Indonesia Africa Infrastructure Dialogue 2019.

"It is hoped that next year will sign concrete economic cooperation with RD Congo," said Retno.

The Cultivation of Grouper, Fish with High Economic Value


Humpback Grouper or Indonesian will be familiar with Kerapu Tikus (Cromileptes altivelis) is a type of fish from the Serranidae family found in Australia, China, Guam, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, New Caledonia, Northern Mariana Islands, Papua Niugini, Philippines, Island Pitcairn, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and maybe in Mozambique and in Vanuatu. Its natural habitat is in coral beach lagoon. This type is threatened with the loss of its habitat.

Grouper or Kerapu Tikus (Doc. Komira)

As for consumption, Grouper is a high economic value fish with the increasing demand. Grouper fish is obtained from fishing in nature, such as in coral waters. Groupers generally have high economic value and good market interest especially in Asian countries including southern China, ASEAN countries, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

In general, this kind of fish seeds are kept come from nature, because the technology of grouper fish seed production from hatchery can not be expected either in quantity or needs.

Humpback grouper meat is the most expensive and the most delicious among other types of grouper fish. Many Indonesian fishermen began to cultivate this type of grouper with sea cage and wall pond methods on land.

The characteristic of this fish has scales of spots and snouts resembling a duck. This grouper is usually fed by fishermen with of pieces of fish, shrimp, and squid.

Yellowfin Tuna, Fish which Steal The World Interest


The southern coastline of Malang Regency is famous for the abundant treasure of maritime resources. The southern region of Bumi Arema is where the top-quality yellowfin tuna swim freely in the Indian Ocean. The popular yellowfin tuna at this time has been exploring the population from every corner of the world, even the Blue Continents are also familiar with the quality of yellowfin from southern Malang.

Doc. Khasiat.co.id

The sustainability of the export of yellow fin abroad was also confirmed by the Fisheries Extension from the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries in the southern Malang region, Bima Perkasa Baskara Putra, on Sunday (8/26).

 "Tuna caught on the south coast collected at Sendangbiru, exported overseas since many years ago," Bima said.

Regarding the delivery mechanism, yellowfin tuna from the coast of Malang first transit in Tanjung Benoa, Bali before the overseas shipping process is also carried out in Benoa.

Before being transported to Tanjung Benoa, yellowfin tuna first through an auction process at Pondok Dadap fish auction place (TPI), Sendang Biru, Sumbermanjing Wetan District, Malang Regency.

Bima explained that the production of yellowfin tuna is mostly intended for international consumption. For local consumption, Bima said that not many domestic consumers consume fish with these premium qualities. It is precisely Japanese food culinary entrepreneurs or hoteliers who consume large amounts of yellow fin.

Bima explained that the Sendangbiru area in southern Malang has abundant maritime resources. One way, a fishing boat can collect up to 350 kilograms. Whereas there are 400 ships in Sendangbiru.

This means that the number of yellowfin tuna that swim freely on the coast of Sendangbiru is very large. In a mathematical calculation, if 1 ship caught 350 kilograms of yellowfin, it was possible to capture 14 thousand kilograms of fish at a time. In one month it is usually done twice when you are in the fishing season. Yellowfin tuna, including deep-water fish, can only be found in depths between 250 and 300 nautical miles.

Tips for Differentiating Squid and Cuttlefish


Cuttlefish or Sotong or Ikan nus are animals that live in waters, especially rivers and sea or lakes. These animals can be found in almost all large-sized waters in freshwater, brackish water, and salt water at various depths, from near the surface to several thousand meters below the surface. Cuttlefish is also a type of seafood.

Image: Komira

Cuttlefish are often misinterpreted as squid. Both are different because of the flat-cut cuttlefish, while the squid is more cylindrical.

This is how to differentiate between Cuttlefish and Squid:

Squid

This marine animal has a long body characteristic and sharps head. The arm section consists of two very long main tentacles, and eight shorter arm tentacles. Position the tentacles just below the mouth. In addition, squid have eyes like fish, with silver edges and black center. The difference is, squid's eyes are bigger.

Just like fish, squid breathe using gills. On the left and right sides of the head are a pair of fins used for swimming. Squid can change the color of his body to trick prey. Inside the body there is also an ink bag that can be sprayed at any time when feeling pressed, like the presence of a prey. This ink is also very tasty and adds savory flavors of squid cuisine.

Cuttlefish

In terms of size, cuttlefish are larger than squid. The similarity of both lies in the number of tentacles as many as 10, with two main tentacles and eight additional shorter tentacles. Cuttlefish and squid's eyes are equally large, with a black center and silver edges. Sotong also has a pair of fins that stick around the neck to the tip of the tail. Breathing using gills like fish and squid, cuttlefish can also camouflage by changing body color and spraying ink liquid.

Because his body is bigger, more cuttlefish meat than squid. How to process it is also not much different. Squid and cuttlefish are washed clean. Dispose of the ink part if you don't like it so much.

Cuttlefish are the main food in the Mediterranean and East Asia. Just like other seafood, cuttlefish are rich in calcium and protein but low in energy. Foods whose main ingredients are cuttlefish are a source of cholesterol. The cooking recipes for cuttlefish are also relatively the same in terms of seasoning and cooking methods as squid. Make sure not to cook it too long, so that cuttlefish and squid are not to tough when eaten.

Cuttlefish are one of the frozen seafoods products of Komira so it’s not to hard to find this kind of seafood that is ready to be processed.

Red Snapper in Indonesia


Red Snapper or Kakap Merah (Lutjanus bitaeniatus) is a species of snapper found in Indonesia. This fish is found mainly in the East Indian Ocean and is known only from a number of specimens collected in Indonesia (near Sumatra and Sulawesi) and west of Kuri Bay, Western Australia. Adult fish inhabit deeper reef areas. They live solitary or in small groups.

Doc. Komira

Many red snapper caught in the depths of the sea floor range from 40 to 50 meters with a small substrate of coral and salinity of 30-33 ppt and temperatures between 5-30, while small fish species are often found on the surface of coral waters during the day. Small fish spread at night to find food for prey such as small fish and other types of crustaceans. Small fish for some types of snapper usually occupy shallow mangrove areas and areas with a lot of seaweed plants.

The potential of red snapper is rarely found in large gangs and tends to live solitary with diverse environments ranging from shallow waters, river estuaries, mangroves, coastal areas, and areas that have a lot of coral reefs.

The spread of red snapper fish in Indonesia is very broad and almost inhabits all coastal waters in Indonesia. The spread of red snapper to the north reaches the Bay of Bengal, the Gulf of Siam and along the coast of South China and the Philippines. Dissemination towards the South reaches Australian tropical waters, Westward to South Africa and Atlantic American tropical waters, direction towards the East reaches the island of the Pacific Ocean.

The spread of red snapper according to the researchers almost throughout the waters of the Java Sea, ranging from Bawean waters, Karimun Jawa Islands, Sunda Strait, South Java, East and West Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Aquatic Waters in the Riau islands.

Red Snapper sold as fresh fish and frozen fish. Komira also sell this fish in frozen forms. This fish can be processed in many ways, soup, grilled, curry broth soup, and many other ways.

Hopefully this collaboration initiative, can provide stimulus to local fisheries businesses and living standards of coastal communities, especially in the outer islands of Indonesia, "Shinichi explained.

"We, JICA want to continue to contribute to the KKP program. The next may be in the construction sector of patrol boats, multipurpose fishing vessels, and supervision, and technology utilization, "he said.

Australia Praises Biosecurity Implementation Quality Assurance and Safety of Indonesian Shrimp Culti


The Australian Government through the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources appreciates the shrimp cultivation production system applied in Indonesia. DAWR assesses, biosecurity, waste management, and product traceability in shrimp culture production systems have been carried out very well. This proves that the application of national biosecurity is good enough.

This assessment was presented in the closing meeting of the field visit of the DAWR Team to the PT Prima Larvae hatchery and PT Indokom shrimp and processing unit in Tanggamus District, Lampung Province, recently. In this series of activities, DWAR also visited the Fish Quarantine Center, Fisheries Product Quality and Security Control (KIPM) Lampung and the Lampung Province Marine and Fisheries Service (DKP).

Image : Tribun Jatim

Previously, in the period of 2-6 July 2016, the DAWR had conducted direct visits to several shrimp farming business units in various shrimp exporting countries including Indonesia to see how the hatchery, enlargement, handling, harvesting, and processing of shrimp products were carried out.

Indonesia is one of the active suppliers of shrimp to Australia. Data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) shows that Indonesia's shrimp export value to Australia last year (2017) reached USD370,969 or 0.03 percent of all product shipments worldwide.

According to the chairman of the DAWR familiarization team, Dr. June Liu, his party made a direct visit to several exporting countries in response to the emergence of white spot disease outbreaks in Australian aquaculture and allegedly brought in from the shrimp used as fishing bait. For that reason, he immediately reviewed the implementation of the quality system, especially the consistency of the application of biosecurity at the on farm level in various exporting countries including Indonesia.

According to Liu, the Australian government is very concerned about the application of biosecurity to ensure food and biological security in the country. Unmitigated, DAWR has a special division that handles biosecurity, namely Biosec Animal. Therefore, the assessment of imports carried out in Australia was carried out strictly.

As a form of its commitment, the CTF has issued a policy of developing cluster-based sustainable shrimp cultivation throughout Indonesia. The concept of sustainable area classification is an effort to tighten the biosecurity system and encourage management collectively and integrated. Thus, it is expected that the effectiveness of the aspects of management will be developed and guarantee the sustainability of the environment and cultivation efforts.

In connection with the regulation of the quality and food safety system at the on farm level, the KKP is combining various standards such as the Good Fish Seedling Method (CPIB), the Good Fish Cultivation Method (CBIB), and the Good Way of Feeding Fish (CPPIB) into one more comprehensive standard namely Indonesian Good Aquaculture Practice (Indo GAP). Indo GAP covers sustainability aspects and strives to standardize product requirements from buyer countries both standard and private standards can be accommodated properly.

In order to make it happen, the KKP also cooperates with the National Standardization Agency (BSN) regarding assistance in developing the Indo GAP certification scheme.

The Government to Accelerates the Improvement of Port and Fishery Business


The Government through the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) will work together with Kesyahbandaran dan Otoritas Pelabuhan (KSOP) and Sea Transportation to confirm that fishing vessels must lean on the Fishery Port. The Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, Susi Pudjiastuti, also said that he will add supporting facilities to meet the needs at the port. This is done to prevent similar incidents from happening at other ports in Indonesia.

This efforts will include acceleration of fishery port management reform, acceleration of abolition of national fishery vessels built abroad at Benoa General Port, and follow up on violation of fishing vessel law practices causing potential loss of state.

Based on the data of KSOP Benoa, there are 173 foreign fishing vessels that lean at Benoa Public Port. A total of 65 of these vessels are fishing boats built abroad that have never been registered as fishing vessels at the CTF. Meanwhile, 108 others were registered as fishing vessels at the CTF but the permit was inactive.

As is known, 36 fishing vessels on fire at Benoa Harbor is owned by a fishing industry company with details of 5 vessels owned by PT Arabikatama Khatulistiwa Fishing Industry (AKFI), 7 ships owned by PT Intimas Surya, and 24 vessels owned by PT Bandar Nelayan. The ships are partly active, some are inactive and no licensing has been submitted, others have not been abolished.

The are three options to be given to the ship owner to abolish the ship's national mark in accordance with the provisions of applicable laws and regulations, such as through overseas sales, scrapping, and the transfer of functions to non-fishery vessels.

In order not to disrupt the activities of fishing vessels at Benoa Public Port, KKP will cooperate with the Ministry of Transportation and PT Pelindo III to arrange the position of fishing vessels built abroad in certain places.

In recent years, interest in capture fisheries activities in Indonesia has increased. However, there are still many violation practices that indicate the low compliance and responsibility of the fishing industry actors. This has an impact on sustainable fisheries management and generates substantial state losses, among others through the mark down of tens of thousands of vessels, borrowing and borrowing practices, falsification of licensing documents, non-compliance / reporting of fishery products, non-tax compliance (including business turnover reporting) disguises by using foreign capital in the fishing business (nominee ownership), as well as other modes.

After attending mangrove planting in the series of World Mangrove Day on Pari Island, Kepulauan Seribu, Sunday (22/6), the Minister of Marine Affairs and Fisheries Susi Pudjiastuti met some fishermen around Muara Baru Jakarta.

Fishermen is known catches especially shrimp quite a lot recently. That's what makes Cirebon fishermen willing to come all the way to Jakarta. In fact, four years later the shrimp are hard to find in the waters of Jakarta.

Not only fishing with boats, fishing activities on the edge of the ship is also crowded. Fishermen do not need all the way to the middle to catch fish. As they close to the beach they can also find fishes. Unlike a few years ago where they had to be far out to sea to get fish and shrimp.

Increased catch of fishermen in the islands of Jakarta proves that fish stocks have improved and returned a lot. With proper management, increased catches are expected to occur in other areas as well.
