Spread Fish Fingerling in Lake Batur

Spread Fish Fingerling in Lake BaturThe beauty of Lake Batur has already been widely known. However, only some few people know the potential of fish in this lake. Well, related to such potential, the Regent of Bangli I Made Gianyar spread 50,000 fish fingerlings belonging to tilapia species in the Lake Batur, Kintamani, Tuesday (Jan 28). The activity was coupled with the inauguration of fish floating net and fishing pond of the Batur customary village.

Aside from preserving fish population, the activity also posed an attempt to develop Bangli into a Minapolitan or fishery center. “The minapolitan is meant to accelerate the regional development around the area of Lake Batur with the fisheries as the major activity in the effort to increase the people’s welfare,” said the Head of Bangli Livestock and Fishery Agency, Made Alit Parwata. According to him, it had been in accordance with the decision of the Minister of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs No.41/Men/2009 on the determination of minapolitan location in Lake Batur region. The cultivation would include the aquaculture accompanied with fishery business, supporting services such as restaurant and fish processing services.

“By doing so, the community development running the fishery business would be able to increase production, productivity of commodities and the processed fish products along with its marketing,” he said.

Lake Batur with the extent of 1,607.50 hectares was targeted to cultivate as much as 5 percent or 88 hectares for the development of floating net cage. Currently, there had been about 90 units of floating net cage in the lake region. They included fingerling plots of 5,015 pieces with a capacity of 11.38 million fish fingerlings.

The total production of fish farming reached 5,238 tons per year, while the fish catch reached 913.3 tons per year. Cumulative number of the fish production resulted from the Lake Batur reached 6,151.5 tons per year of the target of 5,500 tons per year. When averaged, the fish production of Lake Batur reached 1.5 to 3 tons per day.

Meanwhile, the Regent of Bangli Made Gianyar revealed the spread of fish fingerling was meant to add the fish population and an effort to increase the fish production in line with the growing market demand. “Currently, the consumer demand for fish caught in Lake Batur continues to increase, so we strive to help the fishermen,” he said.
