INDONESIA - The Director General of Fishery Product Processing and Marketing (P2HP) has issued a decree listing fish products allowed for export to Indonesia.

The rule states that Indonesia will only import fish species not available in Indonesian waters, except in the event of shortages and seasonal production limitations.

Indonesia’s Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MOMAF) also issued new regulations on fish and fishery products import policy. MOMAF reg 46/2014 specifies required sanitary certificate language and MOMAF reg 41/2014 lists live aquatic species banned from import. These regulations are expected to hinder US fisheries exports.
