Southeast Asia

ISEM activities in Southeast Asia are long-standing and well structured. Several teams have long been conducting research in Indonesia, with the main partners being the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI), the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (KKP) and the Bogor Agricultural University (IPB). The research is mainly focused on fish biodiversity conservation, ecological intensification of continental family fish farming and the adaptation of local communities to volcanic hazards. Collaborations in Thailand with Kasetsart, Burapha and Chulalongkorn Universities address issues related to the modelling and conservation of mammalian biodiversity. ISEM is also planning activities in Cambodia to meet the substantial aquaculture development needs, in collaboration with the Royal University of Agronomy (RUA), the Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC) and the Fisheries Administration (FiA).
