Shrimp Farming Business Contributing to Exports Is Quite Large

Situbondo as a shrimp producer in East Java can be developed as an export producer, especially tiger shrimp and vaname shrimp. It is known, so far, Indonesia's shrimp commodities as a fairly large contributor of the total fishery exports amounted to 55.41%. Based on processed data from the IEB Institute, during January-May 2022, shrimp and processed exports increased by 17.56% (YoY) or reached USD 1.27 billion with export destination countries namely the United States, China, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand. With such a large contribution and potential for national exports, the Indonesian Export Financing Agency (LPEI)/Indonesia Eximbank as the Special Mission Vehicle of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia in collaboration with the Situbondo Regency Government provides training and assistance for shrimp farmers in six villages in Situbondo Regency. This form of cooperation was realized some time ago, namely LPEI inaugurated the Shrimp Cluster Foreign Exchange Village on July 15, 2022 which was witnessed by the Deputy Regent of Situbondo. The follow-up to the synergy between LPEI and the Situbondo Regency Government was to organize export management training for 20 shrimp farmers in the Foreign Exchange Village of Shrimp Cluster in the UPT Hall of Aquaculture, Pathek Hamlet, Gelung Village, Panarukan District, Situbondo, Thursday (28/7). The Livestock and Fisheries Service of Situbondo Regency, representatives of the LPEI Regional Office III (Surabaya) and representatives of PT Panca Mitra Multi Perdana as business partners for shrimp farmers. The Center for Brackish Water Cultivation Fisheries (BPBAP) Situbondo as resource persons provided briefing to the farmers regarding pond business management, shrimp diseases and prevention methods, environmentally friendly shrimp farming and waste management methods. LPEI Executive Director Riyani Tirtoso said that this training is a form of LPEI assistance from an institutional aspect. "The aim is to improve the management competence of the Fish Cultivation Group (Pokdakan) and farmers, improve standard procedures and shrimp quality and improve the ability of farmers to manage waste properly," explained Riyani Tirtoso. Acting Head of the Livestock and Fisheries Service of Situbondo Regency, Kholil appreciated the realization of the collaboration between the Situbondo Regency Government and LPEI through the Situbondo Shrimp Cluster Foreign Exchange Village program. "We hope that in addition to improving competence and skills in shrimp farming, this training can be a role model for other regions in Situbondo Regency to increase business capacity in the SME and village sectors," explained Kholil.
