Talking about coastal Hamadi in Jayapura, Papua, Indonesia, may not be separated from the fish and the fishermen. There are more than 900 fishing families lived in the coastal. Just like the other coastal areas in Indonesia, Hamadi has heterogeneous population. The coastal area overlooks the Pacific Ocean and rich in large pelagic fish. However, limitation of facilities and fishing gear sometime make the production can only meet family and Jayapura fish consumption, while demand sizeable tuna from Bali or other area in Indonesia can never be fulfilled.
