30 illegal fishing boats sank by the Indonesian Government

Hi, Readers! 

It's been a very long time for me to let this blog stagnant. No entry, no update, even no visitors. Haha. Pure you, the corner to share! I am so sorry for leaving you lonely for such a long time. 

Well, as today I have a task from my supervisor to search about the sinks process for the 30 illegal fishing boats that implemented yesterday, 22 Feb 2016 by the Indonesian government, so I will also put the summary, here, as an update for the blog and also as a note.

Yeah, since we have the new Maritime and Fisheries, Ibu Susi Pudjianto, we achieved lots of progress on the fisheries sector. Indonesian have a new power and starting to be consistent to implement the regulation regarding the illegal fishing. I love it! 

Btw, here is the summaries I made, after googling, reading articles that released the information regarding the 'Indonesian Government sank 30 illegal fishing local and foreign boats – 22 Feb 2016.'

The Indonesian Govt, through its Satgas 115 [the Task Force on Illegal Fishing] that lead by the minister of Maritime and Fisheries, Susi Pudjiastuti, has sank 30 illegal fishing boats on 22 February 2016.
