R-VIA

R-VIA is the national Record of Vessels Authorized to Fish for Tuna, Skipjack Tuna and Neritic Tuna within Indonesia Archipelagic and Territorial Waters and Exclusive Economic Zones. MDPI is authorized to support KKP to register vessels that are under MDPI activities. However, in remote areas, such as North Buru, Seram and Assilulu-Ambon, most of the vessels (small tuna handline) are not officially registered. Therefore, MDPI field teams, in coordination with local government, help fishermen to register their vessel.
