60% of Indonesia fishery export is USA and Japan


The largest export destinations of Indonesian fishery is United States and Japan. Both of countries have Indonesia fish export market share up to 60%. "30% of the Indonesia fishery export is to the United States and 30% to Japan, the rest is going to Europe, Hongkong and so on," said Rusman Heriawan, Head of the Central Bureau of Statistics.

In year 2008, based on the grouping of export, the export of fishery products in the top ten positions. Meanwhile in 2010, the export performance of fisheries affected by USA financial crisis, which impact the U.S. and Japanese export markets was declined. "In 2009 export of fishery was in a 11th position, amongst copper, gas, rubber and palm oil," said Rusman.

Viewing conditions this year, Rusman predict Indonesia fisheries export could penetrate the export value of U.S. $ 2.6 billion or below the target of the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. Export performance rating is predicted by Rusman could rise to the eighth rank. "Based on the current potential, these targets can be achieved, especially if exports increase, especially fresh fish that is experiencing increased demand," explained Rusman.

Earlier, Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Fadel Muhammad set a target of Indonesia fishery product exports in 2010 to U.S. $ 2.8 billion. The target was higher than exports in 2009 and the realization that only U.S. $ 2.25 billion. Actual exports in 2009 and then decreased compared to the year 2008 the export value of fishery exports reached U.S. $ 2.47 billion. Decline in exports in 2009 occurred because of the declining consumption of fish by export destination countries due to the impact of global crisis.
