“By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, this afternoon I inaugurated an Area-Based Shrimp Cultivation Pond in Kebumen regency, Central Java province,” said the President.
This 60-hectare shrimp pond is projected to produce 40 tons of shrimp per hectare.
“We hope that one hectare will produce more than 40 tons. This area had spent a budget of Rp175 billion,” he said.
The President also encouraged that the modern aquaculture management implemented in the area can become a model for other regions in the country.
“We hope this will be a good example for vannamei shrimp cultivation which requires clean water and detailed management. We hope this will be an example for others,” he remarked. (TGH/UN) (EST/LW)
