The Main Activities


MDPI implements port-side data collection activities in 2 landing sites. On the water, MDPI deploys onboard observers, spot trace, pelagic data systems (PDS), reolink and time lapse camera (TLC). Data collected in Lombok is uploaded into I-Fish, shared annually with fishers through a data sharing event, and bi-annually under a provincial-level management platform established by MDPI (an FCMC in NTB province).



Understanding that increased availability of fisheries data is not enough, MDPI works on increasing local fishing communities’ welfare through capacity building and community organization. MDPI has helped establish an association (Kelompok Usaha Bersama Harapan Jaya) and empowers coastal community member through the formation of local “champions”.
