Fishery, coastal and marine is potential resources, promising and can be relied upon to improve the economy of the community, especially fishermen and coastal communities. On the other hand, the logical consequence of fishery resources, coastal and marine resources as common property and is open to the public (open access) use of excessive pressure past the carrying capacity of resources (over exploitation) in almost all areas, especially in the region of western Indonesia and also began in the region of eastern Indonesia. The presence of various threats and pressures against the existence of fishery resources, coastal and oceans show that the management and utilization has not been balanced by the rate of recovery. As a results, threatened the existence of the resources and declining capabilities of carrying capacity in processed foods.
To foster a harmonious and mutually beneficial relationship between humans and nature (symbiosis mutualism), particularly in the management of fishery resources, coastal and marine, in 2007 the Japanese government has implemented a concept of wise management of natural resources between communities living around the forest, known as SATO-YAMA adopted into SATO-UMI, a new concept of coastal resources management with strengthenon the relationship between coastal communities with existing fishery resources in the coastal marine areas.SATO-UMI is the concept of the sustainable management of fisheries resources in which human intervention in the management of fishery resources in coastal and marine areas can increase productivity and diversity of fishery resources. In a broader scale, SATO-UMI basic concept can be applied to maintain the balance of the availability natural resources as a source of food by maintaining the stability of the ecosystem.By applying this concept is expected to fishery resources in coastal areas that have been damaged can recover, more productive and rich diversity of biological resources in a balanced and harmonious, and can improve the welfare of coastal communities.
In line with globalchange paradigm in relation to the environmental damage due to the excessive exploitation of natural resources and the consequences of climate change and global warming, it is time for Indonesia to implement the new sustainable concept of coastal resources management such as on the SATO UMIconcept. For this purpose, it is necessary to apply a new concept of management and utilization of fishery resources, coastal and marine with the wise, balanced, harmonious, integrated and more productive by actively involving the coastal community as on the concept of GAPURA SPL-SFiCoMS (Sustainable Utilization of Fisheries, Coastal and Marine Resources for the Society) which is being developed by BPPT. SFiCoMS and SATO UMI conceptshas been implemented in the development of sustainable aquaculture production technology "Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA)", based on the base of biorecycle system in the idle marginal brackish water pond. To socialize the Sato Umi concept in Indonesia has implemented the International Workshop on SATO UMI, GAPURA SPL-SFiCoMS and the first on March 2013 in Jakarta, Indonesia and continued with the International Training on SATO UMI, GAPURA-SPL / SFiCoMS in Karawang on March 2014.
In order to promote and for more socialized Sato Umi concept as well as to determine the future development, will be held THE 2nd INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON SATO UMI-GEMPITA SPL-GAPURA on 26-27 November 2014 at Pekalongan, Central Java with the main focus on promoting and disseminating the concept of SATO UMI through the Education Program, Training and Developmentof Sustainable Aquaculture Technology Innovation in coastal region of Indonesia to the various stakeholders. The workshop will be attended by Ministry of Marine Affair and Fisheries and the Governor of Central Java Province (In Confirmation), City Mayor of Pekalongan, Chairman of BPPT, BPPT First Secretary, Deputy Technical BPPT, SATO UMI experts from Kyushu University of Japan (Prof. Tetsuo Yanagi), the participants of various regions and stakeholders at Pekalongan and Northern Coastal area of Central Java. This workshop is the second workshop and held BPPT in cooperation with the City Government of Pekalongan, PICES (The North Pacific Marine Science Organization) and FRA (Fisheries Research Agency of Japan).
Pekalonganwas chosen as the host of THE 2nd INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON SATO UMI-GEMPITA SPL-GAPURA with consideration that Pekalongan has high economic potential fishery, coastal and mangrove forests in the coastal region for aquaculture development activities. Pekalongan has also quite interesting and unique issues associated with environmental changes due to global warming on the coastal resources to be studied and developed for more productive with applying SATO concept. Pekalongan hascluster models ofshrimp farming area at the DesaDegayu with applying sustainable aquaculture technologies with close biosecurity system on the idle brackishwater pondwith close relation to the SATO UMI concept.MeanwhilePekalongan also has a mangrove forest atKelurahanKandangPanjangthat is used for fisheries activities silvo fishery, polyculture farming with seaweed, milkfish and shrimp as well as for coastal tourism that is important tobe studied scientifically of both function and ecological systems as well as socio-economic aspects on the basedon the SATO UMI concept.
Results from Pekalongan workshop is expected to inspire and give new spirit to the various stakeholders on the manage and exploit fishery, coastal and marine resourcesoptimally, harmonious, productive and sustainable to ensure the sustainability of the fishery-food supply and ecotourism to improve the welfare of the coastal community and economic local government.
The purpose of this workshop is :
1) To promote and disseminate SATO UMI concept through the Education Program Development, Training and Innovation Technology of Aquaculture to optimize the utilization of marginal and idle brackishwater pond in the coastal area of Indonesia as well as to improve the welfare of society and the economic income of local, regional and national.
2) To assess the applicability of PICES's scientific tools for enhancement of the human well-being of local communities and to rehabilitate coastal ecosystem in some candidate sites.
The workshop will be held for 2 days:
1) Workshop on Wednesday, 26-27 November 2014 at Hotel Sahid Mandarin Pekalongan
2) Field trip (from the Field) on Thursday 20 November 2014 Region Aquaculture, Minawisata and Ecotourism Mangrove Forest and the ROB in the Village Cage length, Bandengan and Degayu.
Participants from Indonesia and PICES more than 100participants from various institution such as BPPT, Local Government, Ministry of Marine Affair and Fisheries, Governor of Central Java Province, Universities, Department of Fisheries and the Maritime Provinces at the northern coast of Central Java and West Java, South Sulawesi, NatunaAnambas, Fisheries Entrepreneurs, farmers and other relevant stakeholders. Participants from PICES, FRA and Kyushu University : Prof. Tetsuo Yanagi (Japan), Prof. Chang Hoo Kim (Korea), Dr. Mitsutaku Makino (Japan), Dr. Masahito Hirota (Japan).
