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.
