Sea Cucumber Fishermen

This article is part of the #PelangiDiLautan : Welfare program for smiles at sea

This program is a collaboration between several blockchain-based companies to introduce and explore sea cucumbers more broadly, improve the standard of living and welfare of fishermen, and commit to realize a better economic ecosystem.

The writings in the #PelangiDiLautan program are inspired by the experience carried out in the Saumlaki area, West Southeast Maluku. However, some characters, characters, events, locations and dialogues are fiction and are arranged dramatically to make it more interesting. If there are similarities in the names of characters, places of events or stories, it is merely a coincidence and there is no element of intent

Adit, Gilang and Sarah who were on vacation in Maluku, they were amazed by the beauty of the beaches and natural attractions in Maluku which are still very beautiful and natural. 

Their vacation this time was accompanied by auntie Sri,  she is Sarah’s aunt who had lived in Maluku for a long time following her husband on duty. Their holidays do not feel uncomfortable even though accompanied by Sarah’s aunt, because auntie Sri who is still young at heart and is very cool to talk to and travel with. 

Auntie Sri even bring the to the locations that are rarely visited by tourists. They were also invited to visit historic locations and culinary tours of Maluku. They learned a lot from their trip this time in Maluku. One of them is a marine animal that has many benefits called sea cucumbers. They rarely hear or see this kind of marine animal. It does look disgusting but it tastes quite delicious and more importantly is the nutritional content of sea cucumbers that are very good for health. 

Auntie Sri is one of the loyal customers of sea cucumbers, she always orders Sea Cucumber directly to fishermen. What a coincidence that Adit, Gilang and Sarah were also invited to visit the Sea cucumbers fishermen. They met with some Sea cucumbers fishermen, while waiting for Auntie Sri to buy fish and sea cucumbers. Adit, Gilang and Sarah talked a lot with the fishermen there. Adit who was curious about the reason that the price of sea cucumbers was expensive asked one of the fishermen there. The price of sea cucumbers was expensive because the number of sea cucumber fishermen was very small, the number of buyers who were a lot of fishermen who gave up looking for sea cucumbers and the obstacles in capturing sea cucumbers were quite difficult, they must dive to the bottom of the sea to look for these sea cucumbers. 

Most of sea cucumbers buyer are from rich people who really understand the efficacy of these sea cucumbers for their health, and also some orders from abroad. But there’s still difficult to connect with buyers, where the fishermen still do not understand very well to use the technology in promoting their catches, one of which is sea cucumbers. Pak Zaki one of the sea cucumber fishermen, he really hopes that many people can get to know this sea cucumber species or the government assistance in giving attention to these sea cucumber fishermen to be able to develop. It is unfortunate that Indonesia is one of the regions that produce sea cucumbers mostly but not many people are interested in this marine animals, because of lack of knowledge. 

Gilang suggested to the fishermen there to collaborate using LedgerNow technology that can help fishermen be more easily reunited with consumers or suppliers which will make it easier for them to send their catch. LedgerNow uses a blockchain-based system that makes it easy for fishermen to supply their catches using an application system that automatically records all data stored safely and tracking shipments that transparently and can be tracked in real-time.

Gilang who also saw the lives of fishermen who were still far from prosperity because of the difficulty in developing their catch to be sold to other cities. Mr. Zaki as a sea cucumbers fisherman really hopes that this LedgerNow technology can help sea cucumber sales easier, and many fishermen are interested in sea cucumbers. With the increase of sea cucumber ordering, this will certainly be able to lead to greater interest in sea cucumber farming. These sea cucumbers are marine animals that are actually very nutritious compared to other marine animals, it is unfortunate that the Indonesian people still do not understand the efficacy of sea cucumbers. LedgerNow also helps consumers to choose the quality of Sea Cucumbers at the right price, FLAX is one of the blockchain platforms that can help make it easier to choose the type of Sea Cucumber and determine the price fairly.
