Freshwater Aquaculture Development Project



The products of the freshwater aquaculture account for a quarter of the overall fishery industry products in Indonesia, and have served as an important source of protein for the people. At the same time, the industry has become a significant absorber of laborers and source of livelihood for about three million people. However, the production has only reached sixty percent of the total target production of Indonesia. Therefore, JICA implemented its technical cooperation aimed at improving the production technology of fish seed through freshwater aquaculture as well as to stabilizing the amount of the national fishery production.
