Milkfish (bandeng fish), one of the brackish water commodities that has become a center stage, is getting more popular and convincing in entering the industrial market. Rokhmin Dahuri, Chairman of the Indonesian Aquaculture Society (MAI) said that Indonesia with an economic growth rate being in the big three in the world after China and India has a great potential to develop the fishery industry sector. "Milkfish has been a qualified commodity to be industrilized," said Rokhmin in the national seminar on milkfisk held by the Indonesian Aquaculture Society (MAI) (30/9).


The fact that the milkfish production is among the largest after tilapia and catfish has  become a good reason to be considered feasible as an industrial commodity. As expressed by Slamet Soebjakto, Director General of Aquaculture, Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, milkfish production in 2015 was the third highest in Indonesia with a percentage of 18%, while tilapia and catfish were 29% and 20% respectively.


"Milkfish is one of the commodities whose production should be further increased to be a commodity of industrial scale," said Slamet. Currently, milkfish production centers in Indonesia are situated in three locations, namely West Java, East Java, and South Sulawesi.


Slamet said that based on the data of FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization)in 2013, Indonesia became the biggest milkfish producer in the world with the production reaching 575,256 tons, accounting for more than 50% of the world milkfish,beating the Philippines and Taiwan, which rank 2nd and 3th. "Indonesia has the potential to continue to be the biggest milkfish producer in the world," said Slamet.
