CRIF (AARD) administers research institutes for marine fisheries, freshwater fisheries and coastal aquaculture. In the Research Institute for Coastal Aquaculture, research covers: development of feeding materials for shrimp and fish; improved genetic stock; disease diagnosis; production of enzymes, such as protease, from fish waste; use of proteases to descale fish; and fish preservation through drying and salting. Production of proteases by Bacillus stearothermophilus is being investigated at RIAP. Indonesia has great potential to expand fresh and coastal fisheries and shrimp production.
