Morotai, North Maluku Province

Recognizing how fishery resources play an important role within the supply chain, MDPI began working in Morotai in 2018. MDPI has since been working in Morotai to support the development of robust data collection system to further meet eco-labelling standards. MDPI’s work in Morotai spans 1 village, 2 landing sites, directly supporting 209 fishers, all in support of ensuring a more effective management for tuna fisheries.

The Main Activities


MDPI implements port-side data collection activities in 2 landing sites. On the water, MDPI deploys onboard observers, spot trace, time-lapse cameras (TLC) and pelagic data system (PDS). Data collected in Morotai 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 North Maluku province).
