Indonesia To Ban Lobster Larvae Exports

Indonesia will resume the policies to ban lobster larvae and certain crab exports following the completion of the Regulation of the Minister of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries No. 17/2021 on the management of lobster and crab.

“The ministerial regulation has been completed. Therefore, I can make the official announcement of the regulations which mention, among others, the ban of the export of lobster larvae,” said Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Minister Sakti Wahyu Trenggono in his Instagram account on Thursday, June 17.

Trenggono said the regulation demonstrated what he has said after the swearing-in ceremony to replace his predecessor Edhy Prabowo in December 2020. At that time, Trenggono emphasized that he would review all regulations that had been issued and call on fishermen to cultivate lobster seeds instead of exporting them. The lobster seeds are not allowed to be taken out from farming areas.

“With the issuance of the new regulation, all stakeholders can prosper in managing marine wealth based on the Blue Economy,” he said.

The ban policy also aims to preserve lobster populations in the country. 

Currently, the technical guidelines are still in the finalization stage. Later, a familiarization program will be held to provide more information on the regulations and standards for lobster seed management.

"We will carry out a familiarization program soon," the ministry’s spokesman Wahyu Muryadi told Kompas.com.
