Multidisciplinary Research to Overcome Marine Problems in Indonesia

The Center for Marine Studies is a research center under the Institute of Research and Community Service (LPPM) ITS. The center conducts multidisciplinary research related to marine science and technology to contribute to solving national problems.

The Center for Marine Studies is located at ITS Research Center Building on the 6th Floor. Office space facilities consist of two rooms for management directions, large rooms for researchers and students, as well as a meeting room. For laboratory facilities, the Marine Research Center coordinates with the relevant laboratories under different departments.

Research activities at the Marine Research Center are focused on addressing national issues in the field of marine science and technology. Among others are:

  • Food security and fisheries
  • Defense and security

The leading field in the Marine Research Center is the design of floating net cages (KJA) to support offshore aquaculture. The consideration is the lack of offshore aquaculture development in Indonesia whereas it has enormous potential to contribute to national food security in the field of fisheries. In developed countries such as the United States, Norway, Japan, China, and Russia, the development of offshore aquaculture has been seriously undertaken to become a significant source of non-oil and gas foreign exchange. With this eminent field, ITS is expected to become the leading university in Indonesia in offshore aquaculture development.

By 2017 a team of researchers under the Marine Research Center has produced a structural design for offshore tuna cultivation called “Ocean Farm-ITS”. The design concept is very innovative because it combines fish farming and floating hotels for marine tourism.

It is expected that by 2018 the “Ocean Farm-ITS” prototype will be piloted in a real environment in the southern waters of Java Island to see the characteristics of the floating structure movement in real and sustainable tuna fishing patterns.

Besides, a business model and marketing plan are being developed as well as feasibility studies. It is expected that the management of offshore cultivation can hold local fishermen community so that it can improve the economic level.

In 2019-2020, Ocean Farm-ITS products “can be launched into the market in the form of several business packages, namely tuna fish cultivation along with its supporting facilities and floating hotels for marine tourism.
