Asosiasi Perikanan Pole and Line dan Hand Line Indonesia (AP2HI) was established after a need for a shared voice for Indonesia’s pole-and-line and hand-line industry was identified at the International Coastal Tuna Business Forum in 2012. As the one of the largest global suppliers of tuna, Indonesia’s pole-and-line and hand-line industry supports many coastal communities and livelihoods. AP2HI’s vision is of sustainable fisheries and viable businesses. AP2HI’s members include suppliers, fishers and canners, representing the entire supply chain in Indonesia. In addition to promoting these fisheries, AP2HI is active in innovating the industry to increase efficiency and align to international market requirements. Furthermore, they work to promote fair, transparent, sustainable use of Indonesia’s resources; in doing so, they would gain further support for the fishery. AP2HI was officially inaugurated at the 3rd International Coastal Tuna Business Forum, held in Jakarta in Spring 2014. I-Fish data collection is active for pole and line fisheries in AP2HI member sites.

After a decade of pushing the frontier of ocean planning decision support tools as Ecotrust's non-profit, Marine Consulting Initiative, in August 2013 Point 97 spun off as a for-purpose tech company and reorganized our work towards greater scale and impact. With successes and lessons learned over the past 3 years, the latest chapter of Point 97 is rebooting to bring global solutions and technology that facilitates the collection of trusted and more reliable data for fisheries management, seafood trade accountability, profitability, and traceability at sea, at the docks, and in the markets. Currently Point97 is working to develop an app for data collection activities. The app, called Dock, is hoped to replace the paper-based system of data collection, making the process more efficient.
