Research support for lobster restocking in Indonesia

The Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries wants to increase the sustainability and production of fisheries throughout the country. They intend to improve marine lobster resources through habitat rehabilitation and restocking.
The Agency for Marine Affairs and Fisheries Research and Development (AMAFRAD) has tasked its Research Centre for Fisheries Management and Conservation to lead a research project to meet this goal. The project involves several institutions including the Directorate of Coastal and Small Island (KP3K), the Directorate of Fisheries Aquaculture (DJPB) Research and Development Agency, and various Provincial and District Government Fisheries Centres.
AMAFRAD has requested assistance from ACIAR to support the research project, particularly in the area of tagging, which will be a necessary mechanism for assessing the effectiveness of a restocking program.
