Strengthening fisheries management in Indonesia and Australia
Delegates from the Indonesian Coast Guard (Bakamla) and the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries visited Australian Fisheries Management Authority’s (AFMA) Canberra office to discuss how measures can be better enforced.
The officials toured Australia as part of a three and a half week professional development course run by the University of Wollongong’s Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security (ANCORS), with the visit funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s (DFAT) Australian Awards Fellowships.
A stopover at AFMA marked the final destination of their tour of Australian agencies, having completed class-based learning and practical excursions with other Australian authorities, such as Maritime Border Command. ■
