Fishing & Living visits MDPI in Bali

October 2014

Fishing & Living spent 2 weeks in Bali with the MDPI team to review FIP progress and update the FIP workplan. Fishing & Living had the opportunity to discuss progress of all MDPI activities with MDPI’s FIP manger (Wiro Wirandi) and MDPI’s directors (Momo Kochen and Aditya Utama).

One of the main milestone for year 2014 is the National Tuna Management Plan (NTMP) scheduled to be released before year end! The NTMP has undergone substantial re-drafting following public reviewing during which MDPI has been actively advocating, together with other NGOs, for better alignment with the MSC Principles and Criteria.
