The official estimate of the marine biological resources for Indonesia is 6.7 million tons/year (Ditjenkan 1999a). The fishery and other sea products have recorded a high of 3.61 million tons in 1997. The brackish and freshwater fish cultivation production totaled 0.66 million tons, and the public waters fishery production amounted to 0.3 million tons for the same year, thus totaling about 3.91 million tons. The fish export recorded a huge 574,419 tons with an income of US$1,686,168 (Ditjenkan 1999b).
