In May 2019, with support from USAID Oceans, the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) launched an electronic logbook, or “eLogbook,” application to improve its CDT system, digitally capture and compile data within the fisheries supply chain, and increase compliance with fishing regulations.
