Law Enforcement Criminal Fighting of the Fish Stealing

H. Joni


Law No. 45 of 2009 concerning Amendments to Law Number 31 of 2004 concerning Fisheries, does not regulate the distribution of authority explicitly nor does it regulate definitive work mechanisms, so that the three agencies, namely the Ministry of Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, the Department of Islamic State and Regional Governments state their institutions are both authorized to enforce fisheries law and without any system integration in their implementation. Conflicts of authority like this are not beneficial and reflect law enforcement against fisheries criminal offenses considered weak and not optimal, so that the impact on illegal fishing activities still shows a high enough frequency and continues to continue. For this reason, a solution is immediately sought, in order to create an orderly, safe condition and legal certainty. This has a positive effect on businesses in the field of fisheries, which in turn can improve the welfare of the community. In accordance with the above, it is necessary to improve the ability and competence of human resources, especially at the prosecution and court level so that in the process of resolution or law enforcement against Illegal Fishing can be done professionally and on target so that it is expected that the objectives of the integrated criminal justice system in tackling crime in the field of fisheries can be achieved. Likewise, it is necessary to establish a Coordination Forum for Law Enforcement Officials in the field of Fisheries so that in the handling of criminal fishing cases Illegal fishing can be carried out jointly across sectors so that what becomes an inhibiting factor in law enforcement efforts in the field of fisheries can be minimized.
