Sustainable Ecosystems Achieved (SEA)

USAID/Indonesia's Sustainable Ecosystems Achieved (SEA) project is demonstrating ecosystem-based approaches to fisheries management at local to national scales.

USAID/Indonesia's Sustainable Ecosystems Achieved (SEA) project uses an ecosystem-based approach to reform fisheries management, engaging key stakeholders to enhance conservation and the sustainable use of marine resources, as well as enhance food and nutrition security. The project designates and promotes marine protected areas to reduce declines in critical fishing stocks.

The five-year SEA project will help Indonesia to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing by supporting sustainable fisheries management; strengthening national (MMAF), provincial and district governments to provide fisheries management as a public service; strengthening enforcement capacity and creating reporting tools for fishing violations; building constituencies for management and partnerships with the private sector; and promoting marine protected areas, no-take zones and marine spatial planning as critical for fisheries management and biodiversity conservation.

These efforts include working with the national government to improve Indonesia’s system for collecting fisheries data and for determining harvest catch levels.
