New API executive director

Dr Hawis Madduppa has been announced as the new executive director for the Indonesian Blue Swimming Crab Association (APRI).

Formed in 2007, APRI comprises 13 of Indonesia’s leading crab processor companies, representing over 90% of the product exported from Indonesia to the US market. Dr. Madduppa succeeds former executive director Arie Prabawa, under whom APRI funded an MSC-pre-assessment of the Indonesian Blue Swimming Crab Fishery, developed and implemented a fisheries improvement plan and adopted a 10cm minimum harvest size.

With a background in marine and fisheries management science, Dr Madduppa brings technical expertise and leadership experience to the sustainably minded processing and exporting group. As head of Marine Biodiversity & Biosystematics Labs at Bogor Agricultural University, Dr Madduppa has organised and led research studies on marine organisms exploration, fishery improvement and seafood socio-economics.

“Fishery improvement is all about management but it’s one part science and one part business,” said Dr Madduppa. “In my new role with APRI, I look forward to working with the Indonesian crab industry and our overseas partners, the NFI Crab Council, to focus on sound strategies that result in improved stock health and fishery yield.”
