This new economy will increase the productivity, inclusivity, and sustainability of Indonesia’s seafood sector by fostering innovation, scaling solutions, supporting women in leadership and entrepreneurship, and increasing market demand for sustainable seafood products.

Some of the challenges in the sector include:

50% fish stocks

of Indonesia’s wild capture are overexploited

56 million Indonesians

are dependent on the seafood industry for their livelihood

85% of women

engaged in low skilled, low paid work globally, compared to 1% in CEO roles
