Human Resources of Papuan Indigenous Fishermen for Improving the Economy –  Head of the Jayapura City Fisheries Service, Papua Province, Matheys Sibi, said that human resources of indigenous Papuan fishermen are very important to improve the economy.

“We continue to provide assistance, such as the use of fishing tool assisted by GPS, and a fish finder,” said Sibi at the Jayapura Mayor’s Office, Monday (17/5/2021).

Sibi said, in order to improve the human resources of indigenous Papuan fishermen, assistance in financial management is also very important so that the fish selling can be managed, such as daily necessities and money from fish sales can be set aside for savings.

“Helping fishermen with boats under 5 gross tons. We help to improve their human resources so as they are able to fulfil the daily needs of both themselves and their respective families,” said Sibi.

Sibi hopes that with the increase in human resources for indigenous Papuan fishermen, they can compete with fishermen from out of Papua in managing natural resources in the capital city of Papua Province.

“There are approximately 1,000 Papuan fishermen. This data is from the Jayapura City Administration, which we always use when conducting training, mentoring, and providing assistance, “said Sibi.

The Regional Secretary of Jayapura City, Frans Pekey, said all of the facilities and infrastructure as well as training provided to indigenous Papuan fishermen are in order that they are able to compete with non-OAP fishermen.
