I. ABOUT DFW INDONESIA
Destructive Fishing Watch (DFW) Indonesia is a national institution in the form of an open alliance/consortium that brings together institutions and individuals who care about destructive fishing (DF) or Environmentally Friendly Fishing (PITRaL) activities, poverty, adaptation to climate change and natural disasters in Indonesia. The spirit of this alliance is built to eradicate DF practices comprehensively and promote fishing gear patterns that have an impact on sustainable fisheries.

II. BRIEF PROJECT DESCRIPTION
Fishing Vessel crew and seafood processing workers are very vulnerable to violations of workers’ rights, such as the absence of freedom of association, exploitation, low wages, and the absence of social protection guarantees. Based on reports received through the National Fishers Center – DFW Indonesia, there were 128 complaints of labor violations involving 356 victims of fishing vessel workers between the period November 2019 – Februari 2024. These complaints include 58% of migrant fishing vessel crew (AKP) cases and 42% of domestic AKP cases. The most common issues of complaints are social security insurance, low-paid income or salary reduction, and worker fraud.

DFW Indonesia through Hotspot Seafood Program make an effort to protect the rights of fishery workers and the welfare of their families, the project uses three strategies as an approach, namely:

  1. Advocacy to the government and fisheries business actors
  2. Organizing, capacity building and developing fisheries trade union networks
  3. Strengthen case complaints mechanisms and access to services

The project has so far been carried out in the city of Bitung, North Sulawesi Province, with a number of successes, including the establishment of a Workers’ Union, the organization and training of the community in an effort to promote early detection, joint appearances at the provincial level, and within the province as a whole, to support the government through regional forums.

Furthermore, DFW Indonesia has planned a second project location in Benoa, Badung Regency, Bali Province. Since a fisheries workers’ union has yet to be formed in the area, the first step of the project in Benoa will be to establish a workers’ organization. Benoa is one of Indonesia’s tuna exporting fisheries areas. According to data from Bali’s Fish Quarantine and Quality Control Agency, skipjack export volume in 2020 was 916,000 tons valued at IDR 830 billion. Furthermore, export volume will rise to 1,256,000 tons in 2021, with a value of IDR 1.1 trillion.

Over the next 3 years, this project will begin to initiate advocacy in Jakarta. This is due to the fact that
Jakarta is considered to have great potency in advocacy for the protection of Fisheries Workers,
considering that Jakarta is the upstream area of fisheries labour supply. Based on this matter, the focus
of this project will be in the areas of North Sulawesi, Bali and Jakarta.However, all staff may work in other areas temporally as required.

The aim of the project is to bring employment in the fisheries sector both processing and fishing of vulnerable or exploited marine products to organize, demand rights, improve working conditions, and access information and complaints services.

This project will include three main results, namely: 1.) The government and the private sector are more responsive to the protection of workers’ rights in the fisheries sector, 2.) Fisheries workers are able to organize, demand rights, improve working conditions, and access information and complaints services, 3.) Fisheries workers are able to organize, demand rights, improve working conditions, and access information and complaints services.

In addition to the main results, DFW Indonesia will provide operational and case management support to the National Fishers Center (NFC) on crew complaints, participate in raising awareness of fishery workers for association and improve ease of access for National Fishers Center Indonesia services nationwide. DFW Indonesia will also design and produce educational and information materials to support campaigns for fisheries workers, both Fish Processing Unit workers and Fishing Vessel Crews
