Scientific Communication in Fisheries and Marine Sciences

In the 2015, theIndonesian government announced the much-awaited vision, namely “maritime-axis doctrine” that putsfisheries, marine affairs and thefisheries sectoras the main pillarof national economic development. Indonesianmarine and fisheries developmenthas adoptedthe concept ofsustainable developmentparadigm“Blue Economy”(Pauli, 2010).Such a concept is the latest version of the green economy which is not only preserving and protecting ecosystems for sustainable use, the blue economy also puts the ecosystem as a subject and a model in the use of the ecosystem itself by focusing on community involvement (social inclusiveness), creativity and innovation that can manage products and services in an efficient manner.

After success with first KRIPIK-Scifimas 2016, Fisheries and Marine Sciences Faculty-JenderalSoedirman University in collaboration with the Center for Maritime Biosciences Studies organizedfor the second a “Scientific Communication in Fisheries and Marine Sciences” (SciFiMaS) conference.The SciFiMasconference2018came fromthe idea ofreunification ofthe vision andcommitmentof fisheries and marinestakeholdersinIndonesiain order to supportsustainable developmentthrough scientific communication based on the results of basic research, appliedandfrontiersciences in this field.Approximately300-400 participantsand invited guestsfromvariousorganizations/institutionswithdiverse backgroundsboth fromgovernment, businesses, communitiesand academiawillbe able to attendthe activitiesfor plannedSciFiMas2016.The conference sessionswill be openedbythe Ministry of Coordinating of Maritime Affairs and Resources (to be confirmed) and three guest speakersrepresentingacademia, business (Indonesian Chamber of Commerce),governmentandsociety.

To reinforce the Indonesian branding,we call this international conference “KRIPIK-SciFiMaS”,which comes from the SciFiMaStranlation in bahasa Indonesia (KRIPIK :Komunikasi Riset Ilmiah Perikanan dan Ilmu Kelautan).
