Indonesia, as a maritime country, is seeking to be able to be the world’s largest fish producer in 2015, state news agency Antara reported, quoting a ministry official Saturday.

Victor Nikijulu, the director general of business and investment at the ministry of fishery and marine resources, said he was optimistic the target would be reached through development of various fishery products.

"What needs to be improved first is the fishery infrastructure and facilities for fishermen," he said.

If the infrastructure and facilities is improved it is not impossible for the quality and quantity of fishery products to rise, he said.

He said his office was now seeking to develop markets in the Middle East and Africa, relying on processed fishery products.

He said unless Indonesia changed its marketing strategy it would lose to Vietnam who is a newcomer in the field.

"We must immediately change the products to have more added value so that they would market well," he said.
