SOCAP10: Jerry Knecht, Bail Seafood International

  1. 1. Lesser Sunda Sustainable Fishing Initiative
  2. 2. The Coral Triangle Most Diverse Region on the Planet • 6 countries • 6 million km2 • 6 of the world’s 7 marine turtle species • 75% of the world’s coral species • 40% of the world's coral reef fish species • All pelagic species migrate from the Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean through the CTI
  3. 3. World Fisheries • The world capture fisheries peaked in 1985 at 90 million tons • All industrial capture fisheries would be bankrupt today without government subsidies • Marine protein consumption has increased 57% since 1997 • Aquaculture cannot fill the consumption gap created by increasing consumer demand and population growth
  4. 4. North Atlantic World Wide Sourcing
  5. 5. Coral Triangle Fishing • Many of the stocks in the Coral Triangle have been fished to the point of overexploitation • Subsistence fishers using present methods will fish stocks to the point of collapse in the next 10 -15 years • Over 40% of the harvest never makes it to market due to poor handling and lack of infrastructure
  6. 6. The Problem • 180 million people in the CTI depend on seafood as their major source of protein. • The western markets will outbid local populations for unsustainable marine protein. • Increased pressure on juvenile fish for local consumption will collapse stocks. • The reduction of marine protein in the CTI will create a Food Security crisis in an area where most are living at subsistence level or below
  7. 7. Why is this an opportunity? • The LSSFI Initiative is a “game changer” with triple bottom line impact. • This is an opportunity to insure that the most productive fisheries of the world are managed sustainably. • It is the first time private industry is leading collaboration among NGOs and government agencies.
  8. 8. Why is this high impact? • It is the first time in S.E. Asia economic incentives have been used to drive fisher behavior towards better harvesting methods. • The model we have developed can be scaled to the rest of the developing world • The reduction of industrialized fishing in this area has changed the economics allowing for productive artisanal fishing • The system is ripe for change
  9. 9. Funding Opportunities • North Atlantic, Inc – Grants for IP development. Working/growth capital • NAI Ventures, Inc – Equity and working capital to subsidiary operations and Infrastructure • P.T. Bali Seafood International – Debt for build out of export plant. Trade financing for export
  10. 10. Collaborative Entities • World Wildlife Fund • The Nature Conservancy • Sustainable Fisheries Partnership • Ministry of marine Affairs – Fisheries Indonesia • UN-FAO Regional Fisheries Livelihood Programme • University of California Santa Barbara
