Indonesia’s federal government has informed the country’s 33 provincial governments that an 8-centimeter minimum-size limit will become a requirement for blue-swimming crab exports to the United States.

The federal government sent out a letter to stakeholders, including local fisheries services, mini-plants and associations, to implement the minimum-size limit, although it is voluntary.

This is a major accomplishment and a significant first step toward having rules and regulations in place in Indonesia that will contribute in a large measure to the sustainability of the blue swimming crab fishery.
