“Ekplorasi Pemanfaatan Sumber Daya Perikanan Kelautan Di Kawasan Kepulauan Indo-Pasifik”
“Exploration & Utilization on Marine and Fisheries Resources Around Indo-Pasific Archipelago Region”
The Indo-Pacific is a biogeographic region of the world’s oceans, comprising the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, the western and central Pacific Ocean, and the seas connecting the two in the general area of Indonesia.
The term is especially useful in marine biology, ichthyology, and similar fields, since several marine habitat have the interconnectivity far from Madagascar to Japan and Oceania, and a huge number of species found in this zone. Additionally, the Indian Ocean Waters and the Tropical Pacific Waters have a lot of the resemblance in terms of biological characteristics and the similarity of some marine animal species as well. These are not found in the Atlantic Ocean. The region has an exceptionally high species richness, including 3000 species of fish, compared with around 1200 in the next richest marine region, the Western Atlantic, and around 500 species of reef building corals, compared with about 50 species in the Western Atlantic.
The physical parameters of the Indian Ocean cover an area of 68.6 million square kilometers with a coastline that reaches 66,526 kilometers, and the Pacific Ocean covers an area of 155.6 million square kilometers with a coastline that reaches 135,663 kilometers. In essence, the Indo-Pacific region is very strategic because it has broad regional potential, biological resources, mineral and energy, and industrial and maritime services as well.
In this context, Indonesia has a strategic role in this area as the center of maritime traffic between the continents. In addition, this region known as a country with high biodiversity, where consists of 7,000 spesies of fish in the world, 2,000 of them are found in Indonesia. The sustainable potential of marine fisheries resources is approximately 6.4 million tons per year consisting of 1.16 million tons large pelagic, 3.6 million tons of small pelagic and of 1.36 million tons of demersal ones. In terms of the crustaceans, it is found 0.094 million tons of penaeid, 0.004 million tons of lobsters, and 0.028 million tons of squid. Meanwhile, reef fishes are found 0.14 million tons. The number of allowable catch of 5.12 million tons per year or about 85% of the sustainable potential that spread in nine of Indonesian Fisheries Management Area.
North Moluccas is an archipelago province which has a strategic role in the Indo-Pacific region, because it directly borders with Pacific Ocean. North Moluccas has the sea area of 113,796 km2 with 805 of the large Islands and small islands, seven bays, as center of the world’s coral triangle, and is located in four Fisheries Management Area namely 714, 715, 716, and 717.
