Though majoring in fisheries, many of the field’s graduates are not interested in pursuing a career in Indonesia’s marine sector. According to Centre of Reform Economics (CORE) senior observer Mohammad Faisal, the lack of manpower welfare has discouraged graduates from seeking jobs in the field. CORE collected this data during 2011-2014, and found that only five per cent of college graduates majoring in fisheries worked for the marine sector while the remaining opted to work for the government, trade, and education sectors. Mohammad Faisal also added that the new government is expected to provide the necessary formal education and the required training for the marine and fisheries sector to increase its employees’ welfare.
