Review of Law Enforcement against Illegal Fishing in Indonesia's Exclusive Economic Zone
This article discusses the law enforcement against illegal fishing by foreign-flagged vessels in Indonesia’s exclusive economic zone. Because the criminal sanctions in the form of fines are very low and there is no threat of imprisonment, the current laws carry little weight with illegal fishermen. This study makes the case for increasing the fines substantially to act as a deterrent. Using the established legal method (involving a statute approach and a conceptual approach), this study makes the case for increasing the fines substantially to act as a deterrent.
